Feb. 12, 2004: DR. KONSTANTIN FRANK Riesling Finger Lakes Dry 2002 (90 points, $14)

Really fine fruit here. This drinks like a Mosel Riesling, with fig and lime flavors that ripple along crunchy acidity, supported by a distinct slate note. Admirable concentration, with fine cut on the finish. Should age nicely. Drink now through 2006. 2, —James Molesworth

Feb. 10, 2004: VIÑA MONTES Sauvignon Blanc Curicó Valley Fumé Blanc Reserve 2003 (88 points, $10)

This Chilean Sauvignon is quite refined, as the sweet pea, chive, lime, mineral and floral notes run along a creamy, yet lively palate. Very pretty finish. Drink now. 17,000 cases made. Best Values. —James Molesworth

Feb. 09, 2004: BODEGA CATENA ZAPATA Malbec Mendoza Alamos 2002 (89 points, $11)

Ripe, lip-smacking acidity helps keep the plum, blackberry and boysenberry fruit bouncing along here, with tasty mocha and spice notes as well. Subtle toast, so the fruit really shines. A delicious, forward style with textbook flavors. Drink now through 2 —James Molesworth

Feb. 05, 2004: FAIRVIEW Sauvignon Blanc Coastal Region 2003 (88 points, $10)

Rich yet racy, with lemon peel, straw, chamomile, smoke and mineral notes on a live-wire palate. Long, stony finish. Well done. Drink now. 6,500 cases imported. Best Values. From South Africa. —James Molesworth

Feb. 02, 2004: GRAHAM BECK Sauvignon Blanc Coastal Region 2003 (87 points, $10)

This South African Sauvignon Blanc is elegant, but with deceptive richness, with white peach, mineral and lime flavors that fan out nicely on the mouthwatering finish. Drink now. 14,000 cases made. Best Values. —James Molesworth
