WEINBACH Riesling Alsace Cuvée Ste.-Catherine 2001
92 points, $40
The wild side of Alsace. Loads of spice and floral top notes, with tropical fruit, stone and pastry accents beneath. Full-bodied yet graceful, it starts out off-dry, then the vivid acidity takes over. Needs time. Best from 2004 through 2012. 180 cases imp —Bruce Sanderson
