Sep. 04, 2002: CHÂTEAU DE PARAZA Minervois Cuvée Spéciale 2000 (86 points, $8)

This value-priced Languedoc red is dominated by medium-bodied plum and berry aromas and flavors. Also offers spicy notes and a clean finish, with peppery elements. Made from Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignane. Drink now. Best Buy. —Kim Marcus

Sep. 03, 2002: BARTON & GUESTIER Côtes du Rhône Tradition 2000 (85 points, $9)

A Côtes du Rhône red that impresses with its ripe tannins. Delivers some chalk and mineral atop the expected plum. Firm finish suggests it can match a T-bone steak just fine. Drink now through 2004. 29,165 cases made. Best Buy.

For a complete loo —Per-Henrik Mansson

Aug. 31, 2002: VIÑA SANTA RITA Sauvignon Blanc Maule Valley Reserva 2001 (84 points, $11)

Aug. 30, 2002: ODFJELL Carmenère Central Valley Armador 2001 (86 points, $12)

Here's another solid Chilean red made from a grape that is becoming a bit of a signature for the region. Medium-weight plum and bell pepper notes, with some sweet smoke on the finish. Nice mouthfeel. A solid introduction to the Carmenère grape. Drink now —James Molesworth

Aug. 27, 2002: TYRRELL'S Shiraz South Eastern Australia The Long Flat Vineyard 2001 (85 points, $9)

A solid buy that should be easy to find, this Shiraz is soft and round, with pretty blackberry and floral aromas and flavors that echo nicely on a polished finish. Drink now. 50,000 cases made. Best Buy. —Harvey Steiman
