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

Jul. 31, 2002: GEORGES DUBOEUF Morgon Prestige 2000 (89 points, $12)

The 2000 vintage was exceptionally good in Beaujolais, and Georges Duboeuf has just released some additional cuvées that are terrific value. Scrumptious blackberry and boysenberry flavors, with lush toast and elegant spice shadings on the juicy finish. C —James Molesworth
