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

Aug. 20, 2002: CHÂTEAU CAP DE FAUGÈRES Côtes de Castillon 1999 (87 points, $8)

Bargain Bordeaux isn't an oxymoron if you can latch onto some of this. Perfumed and very pretty, with light fruit and lilacs. Medium-bodied, with a lovely balance of fruit and velvety tannins. Delicious. Try to find a Bordeaux this good for less. Drink no —James Suckling

Aug. 09, 2002: BERINGER Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley Appellation Collection 2000 (88 points, $12)

Here's a nice value in California Sauvignon Blanc that should be easy to track down. Cardamom, lemon, melon and quince flavors have a honeyed character, picking up lush caramel and fig notes that linger through the finish. Very good inexpensive summer qua

Aug. 07, 2002: JACOB'S CREEK Shiraz South Eastern Australia 2000 (84 points, $10)

On the lighter side, but nicely fleshed out with strawberry and spice flavors, which echo on the grainy finish. Drink now through 2003. 200,000 cases made. Best Buy.

Aug. 01, 2002: PARINGA Shiraz South Australia Individual Vineyards 2001 (90 points, $10)

Smooth and generous, an inviting Aussie red that's plump with black cherry, blackberry and exotic spice flavors, hinting at dark chocolate as the flavors persist on the fine-grained finish. Outstanding wine for an outstanding price. Drink now through 2004 —Harvey Steiman
