The 2003 Graacher Himmelreich (ldquo;The Kingdom of Heavenrdquo;) is full-bodied for a Kabinett, with fresh, lovely flavors of peach and apricot. A classic wine that can be sipped on its own or with a light entreacute;e.

The 2001 Riesling Kabinett Graacher Himmelreich reveals a nose of slate and minerals. More demure and elegant than the Wehlener Sonnenuhr, it admirably combines outstanding richness with a zesty acidity. White peaches and Champagne currants can be found in its pure, refined, and long finishing personality. Drink it over the next 7ndash;8 years. This is a superb value.

Flavors reminiscent of peaches and apricots accented by scents of freshly picked wild flowers. Delicate and light with sleek acidity and a sweetness that does not become cloying.

Exotic aromas of passion fruit and red berries segue into lime and mineral on the palate in this intense, racy Riesling. It has the live-wire structure of a Saar or Ruwer wine. Drink now through 2007. Highest rated Mosel Kabinett.

It comes from a high-elevation vineyard closer in microclimate to neighboring Bernkastel than is the rest of the Himmelreich. Grapefruit and black currant aromas and juicy fruit flavors. Very clear and refreshing, with its eight grams of acid among the highest of the wines here today. Manages poise, delicacy and lift despite carrying significantly more alcohol that would be the Richter Kabinett norm.

A 2005 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett smells and tastes of black currant, cherry, and lemon, is fine, bright, and invigorating on the palate, and manages that special 2005 trick of evincing substantial richness and sheer extract while being light to the touch and uplifting in the finish. There is admirable purity of fruit on display here along with salt and wet stone manifestations of the Mosel.

This starts with aromatic floral notes, but doesnrsquo;t carry through on the palate. It tastes dilute, with modest fruit and a short finish. Drink now through 2006.
