Aug. 26, 2002: CONCHA Y TORO Carmenère Rapel Valley Casillero del Diablo 2001 (85 points, $10)

Carmenère is a grape unique to Chile, and where it's bottled on its own more and more. This version shows the grape's characteristic pepper and plum profile, with a fleshy mouthfeel and smoky finish. Drink now. 8,000 cases made. Best Buy. —James Molesworth

Aug. 24, 2002: RAVENSWOOD Zinfandel California Vintners Blend 2000 (86 points, $11)

Here's a fine value from a California winery with a long track record with Zinfandel. Chewy, with concentrated dried wild berry, dried raspberry and strawberry jam flavors. Pretty vanilla tones linger, along with modest tannins and a slight metallic note.

Aug. 23, 2002: DI MAJO NORANTE Falanghina Molise 2000 (86 points, $10)

Very perfumed aromas, with lots of freshly sliced lime. Medium-bodied, with good fruit and a delicious almond and honey aftertaste. Good buy in Italian whites. From a region north of Campania. Drink now. 20,000 cases made. Best Buy. —James Suckling

Aug. 22, 2002: ANTINORI Orvieto Classico Campogrande 2000 (84 points, $9)

From Italy's Umbria region comes this solid value, made from Trebbiano. Clean and fresh, with crisp, lemony character. Medium body. Refreshing aftertaste. Drink now. 100,000 cases made. Best Buy. —James Suckling

Aug. 21, 2002: CAVE DE TAIN L'HERMITAGE Crozes-Hermitage Les Nobles Rives 2000 (87 points, $11)

Here's a tasty Syrah from the Northern Rhône made in an ample amount. Delicious plum, roasted game, toasted nuts and smoked bacon notes in this pretty, medium-bodied red. The supple tannins make it accessible on release. The price makes it accessible too —Per-Henrik Mansson
