Oct. 08, 2003: VIÑA DOÑA PAULA Malbec Luján de Cuyo Los Cardos 2002 (86 points, $8)

This Argentinean winery is owned by the Chilean Santa Rita winery, and it is putting out some very fine value-priced wines. Herb and fur aromas sit atop plum, blackberry and mocha flavors, with a fleshy finish. A bit chunky and rustic, but solid. Drink no —James Molesworth

Oct. 04, 2003: BODEGAS ESCORIHUELA Malbec-Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo High Altitude 2002 (88 points, $9)

From Argentina, winemaker Estela Perinetti has fashioned this pure and driven red, with raspberry and blackberry confiture aroma and flavor, as well as lush plum, dark chocolate and Christmas pudding notes. Thick but lithe, with plenty of fruit to spare. —James Molesworth

Oct. 01, 2003: CONCHA Y TORO Cabernet Sauvignon Puente Alto Marqués de Casa Concha 2001 (89 points, $14)

From Chile comes this elegant red, with cassis, black cherry and currant fruit, subtle vanilla and toast shadings and slightly firm but fine tannins. Not a powerhouse like previous vintages of this wine, but a balanced effort in a lighter vintage. Drink n —James Molesworth

Sep. 30, 2003: EXCELSIOR Cabernet Sauvignon Robertson 2002 (87 points, $8)

Juicy and fresh, with blackberry and cassis fruit, sweet smoke, and a chocolaty finish. Moderate in scope, but really quite tasty. Heck of a value. Drink now. 60,000 cases made. Best Values. —James Molesworth

Sep. 23, 2003: COLUMBIA CREST Merlot Columbia Valley Two Vines 2000 (86 points, $8)

From Washington state comes this value Merlot. Soft, supple and generous with its currant, cherry and floral flavors, finishing with a spicy touch. Drink now. 175,000 cases made. Best Values. —Harvey Steiman
