Dec. 03, 2001: CELLARS OF CANTERBURY Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Moata 2001 (89 points, $13)

Here's another New Zealand Sauvignon that showcases the region's signature style. Open-textured and refreshing for its full-throttle fruit, this well-priced offering centers on pear and peach, picking up hints of lime and parsley. Drink now. 50,000 cases —Harvey Steiman

Nov. 28, 2001: CHÂTEAU DE ST.-COSME Côtes du Rhône 2000 (88 points, $12)

Like a spoonful of chocolate pudding. Thick, rich and delicious, this is a caressing wine, with sweet tannins offering plenty of fruit, harmony and full-bodied texture. Not a serious red, but long, fruity and delectable -- and look at the price! Drink now —Per-Henrik Mansson

Nov. 15, 2001: TYRRELL'S Shiraz South Australia The Long Flat Vineyard 2000 (86 points, $8)

This family owned winery uses their Long Flat vineyard to produce this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Malbec. Supple and cushiony, with pretty plum and berry flavors and a round frame, echoing softly on the finish. Drink now through 2003. 40,000 —Harvey Steiman

Nov. 12, 2001: TATACHILLA Shiraz South Australia Breakneck Creek 2000 (87 points, $10)

Here's an Australian Shiraz ideal for fall drinking at an easy-going price. Smooth and polished, with pretty plum and currant flavors, picking up a lovely strawberry note on the velvety finish. Drink now through 2005. 35,000 cases made. Best Buy. —Harvey Steiman

Nov. 09, 2001: FATTORIA DI BASCIANO Chianti Rufina 1999 (87 points, $11)

Here's an interesting, medium-bodied red, with earthy and smoky plum and berry character upfront, followed by a mineral, almost salty aftertaste. Firm backbone. Needs good, hearty Tuscan food. Good value. Best after 2002. 10,000 cases made. Best Buy. —James Suckling
