Aug. 31, 2001: DOMAINE DE BISCONTE Côtes du Roussillon 1999 (88 points, $8)

From the western part of France's Languedoc-Roussillon region comes this lively and nicely spiced red, with bright red cherry and grape flavors. Balanced, with good structure and firm tannins, and notes of cardamom on the finish. Drink now through 2003. 1 —Kim Marcus

Aug. 29, 2001: CASA LAPOSTOLLE Merlot Rapel Valley 2000 (87 points, $10)

This Chilean winery has made a name for itself with its modern-styled wines. This Merlot has lots of toast, but there's enough fleshy black plum and cassis fruit to back it up. Bittersweet chocolat

Aug. 28, 2001: ODFJELL Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley Armador 2000 (87 points, $10)

Here's a debuting winery from Chile that's off to a good start. Elegant, with cherry, cedar, vanilla and mineral notes that linger, carried by dusty, yet stylish tannins on the finish. Nicely done.

Aug. 27, 2001: SAUVION & FILS Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie Château du Cléray 1999 (88 points, $10)

From the Loire valley comes this white. Vibrant, exuding dense floral, lemon and apple notes on a racy frame. Balanced and sleek, it picks up mineral accents on the finish. Try with shellfish. Drink now. —Bruce Sanderson

Aug. 20, 2001: HOGUE Cabernet-Merlot Columbia Valley 1999 (86 points, $10)

This blend from Washington state is a bit raw, but packed with bright currant, plum and fresh herb aromas and flavors. Tannins give way to the generous fruit in the end. Best after 2002. 60,379 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
