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

Jan. 31, 2004: VIÑA ERRÁZURIZ Cabernet Sauvignon Aconcagua Valley 2002 (88 points, $10)

Solid, modern fruit -- cassis and black currant -- with ample smoke and chocolate notes, and a nice bit of grip on the finish. Forward and tasty. Drink now. 7,150 cases imported. Best Values. From Chile. —James Molesworth

Jan. 29, 2004: MONTGRAS Cabernet Sauvignon Colchagua Valley Reserva 2002 (88 points, $10)

Lovely racy feel, despite its dark, brooding currant, plum and cedar notes. Lots of coffee, smoke and muscular tannins on the back end, but the fruit keeps pumping along, too. Burly style, but I like it. Drink now through 2005. 25,500 cases made. Best Va —James Molesworth

Jan. 27, 2004: BODEGA BUDINI Malbec Mendoza 2002 (87 points, $11)

A bit snappy for a Malbec, with blackberry fruit buffered by a crisp finish. Fresh, with good weight, this may flesh out a touch in the short-term. Drink now through 2005. 6,000 cases made. Best Values. From Argentina. —James Molesworth
