WITTMANN Riesling Auslese Rheinhessen Westhofener Morstein S 2003
93 points, $75/500ml
Passion fruit and pineapple galore in this opulent, almost racy '03 auslese. Has a very fine structure for the vintage and what tastes like a slight edge of botrytis to the flavors. Drink now through 2025. —Bruce Sanderson

ROBERT YOUNG Chardonnay Alexander Valley 2002
92 points, $37
Rich and creamy, with tiers of buttery pear, hazelnut, marshmallow, anise and smoke, it shows off the ripeness of the fruit and pretty oak. Drink now through 2008. 1,240 cases made. —James Laube

CLARENDON HILLS Syrah Clarendon Brookman 2003
92 points, $115
Firm, with racy blackberry, spice and something like lime lingering in the background, finishing with refinement. Drink now through 2010. 800 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

VON HÖVEL Riesling Eiswein Long Gold Cap Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Oberemmeler Hütte 2003
93 points, $75
The immediate impression is ripe, concentrated peach, spice and mineral flavors. Then the lively structure emerges, cleansing the palate and providing a counterpoint for the sweetness, with a vanilla pastry aftertaste. Drink now through 2020. —Bruce Sanderson

ULITHORNE Shiraz McLaren Vale Frux Frugis 2001
93 points, $55
Ripe, lively and focused. A plump mouthful of blueberry, plum, vanilla and spice flavors that persist impressively on the open-textured finish. Drink now through 2015. 1,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
