Dec. 13, 2002: ZIND-HUMBRECHT Riesling Alsace Wintzenheim Clos Häuserer 2000 (93 points, $40)

A perennial benchmark for the region, this Alsace Riesling offers up wonderful aromas of peach, citrus and white pepper, with the peach theme continuing on the dry, full-bodied palate. It turns austere on the finish, but has the concentration and balance —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 11, 2002: ENGELBRECHT-ELS Ernie Els Stellenbosch 2000 (93 points, $60)

Nov. 29, 2002: CA' BIANCA Barolo 1997 (91 points, $33)

Here's a late-release Barolo from the ripe '97 vintage that won't break the bank. It's a big and juicy red, thick and powerful, yet rich and long. Velvety tannins and meaty, fruity and light toasted flavors. Give this time. Best after 2005. Shouldn't be t —James Suckling
