JOH. JOS. PRÜM

Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Wehlener Sonnenuhr 2000

$23

Smoke and slate aromas burst forth in this ultrarefined, filigreed Mosel kabinett. Firm and focused, it's forward now, but give it time to integrate. Drink now through 2008. —Bruce Sanderson

C. VON SCHUBERT

Riesling QbA Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Maximin Grünhäuser Abtsberg 2000

$21

Very appealing. Like a laser, this focuses its beam of apple and mineral across the palate, ending in a crisp manner, all on a lightweight structure. Drink now through 2005. 500 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
