Dec. 11, 2003: BODEGAS EGUREN Viño de la Tierra de Castilla Protocolo Red 2001 (87 points, $6)

This value-priced offering from Spain is just the ticket to stock up on for winter. Made from 100 percent Tempranillo, it's a plush red, rich with chocolate and black cherry flavors, thick and almost sweet on the palate, with ripe, well-integrated tannins —Thomas Matthews

Dec. 03, 2003: KANU Sauvignon Blanc Stellenbosch 2003 (89 points, $12)
