Jul. 21, 2001: COLUMBIA CREST Chardonnay Columbia Valley 1999 (87 points, $12)

A Washington Chardonnay whose appeal doesn't stop with its value price. This is light, soft and tangy, with pretty orange peel and creamy notes weaving through the supple pear flavors, the ensemble echoing nicely on the gentle finish. Drink now. Plenty to —Harvey Steiman

Jul. 19, 2001: ARBOR CREST Sauvignon Blanc Columbia Valley 1999 (88 points, $9)

From Washington comes this well-priced wine. A rich, round, generous style of Sauvignon, this emphasizes ripe pear and tangy grapefruit flavors, layering in a deft touch of spicy oak to round out the finish. Drink now through 2003. 5,462 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Jul. 16, 2001: CHÉREAU PÈRE & FILS Sauvignon Touraine Domaine La Prévôté 2000 (86 points, $8)

From the Loire comes this well-priced, crisp and focused Sauvignon, crackling with gooseberry, grass and citrus flavors on a balanced frame. Good lingering finish, too. Drink now. 15,000 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Jul. 12, 2001: HESS Chardonnay California (86 points, $11)

Here's a good buy in California's most popular white variety. This one's round and buttery up front, with pear, apple and lemon flavors carrying through the tangy finish. Drink now. 170,000 cases made.

Jul. 09, 2001: VIÑA SAN PEDRO Cabernet Sauvignon Lontué Castillo de Molina Reserva 1999 (86 points, $10)

Polished Chilean red, with a lot of creamy toast and vanilla notes up front and sweet black cherry and currant flavors on the finish. Fans of the style will find the low price a bonus. Drink now through 2002. Should be easy to find some of the 60,000 case —James Molesworth
