($95) Pale yellow-gold. Musky aromas of ripe apricot, smoked meat and minerals. Silky in texture and superrich but downright steely today. Very dry (less than three grams of r.s.) and unforgiving wine, and yet this seems purer and finer than the 2004. I wouldn't think about pulling a cork for at least three or four years, if not considerably longer than that. Humbrecht noted that both the '04 and '05 Rangens are much drier than the rieslings he produced from this grand cru vineyard in many earlier vintages.Author: Stephen Tanzer
