Apr. 28, 2000: IRONSTONE Shiraz California NV (85 points, $9)

Earthy, minty aromas are tinged with cherry, cola and tea notes on the palate in this straightforward presentation of Shiraz that gives its Aussie cousins real competition in the price/score ratio. Drink now through 2003. 10,000 cases made. —James Laube

Apr. 27, 2000: BRIDGEVIEW Riesling Oregon Blue Moon NV (85 points, $7)

This Oregon winery delivers good value in several varieties -- this time with a softly sweet Riesling, offering pretty apple and spice flavors and a touch of honey on the round finish. Drink now. 30,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Apr. 25, 2000: GROVE STREET Syrah California Baker 1998 (85 points, $9)

Apr. 21, 2000: SIMONSIG Pinotage Stellenbosch 2000 (89 points, $13)

Apr. 19, 2000: FARALLON Chardonnay North Coast 1998 (85 points, $10)
