Aug. 22, 2002: ANTINORI Orvieto Classico Campogrande 2000 (84 points, $9)

From Italy's Umbria region comes this solid value, made from Trebbiano. Clean and fresh, with crisp, lemony character. Medium body. Refreshing aftertaste. Drink now. 100,000 cases made. Best Buy. —James Suckling

Aug. 21, 2002: CAVE DE TAIN L'HERMITAGE Crozes-Hermitage Les Nobles Rives 2000 (87 points, $11)

Here's a tasty Syrah from the Northern Rhône made in an ample amount. Delicious plum, roasted game, toasted nuts and smoked bacon notes in this pretty, medium-bodied red. The supple tannins make it accessible on release. The price makes it accessible too —Per-Henrik Mansson

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.
