Feb. 14, 2000: J. & F. LURTON Syrah Vin de Pays d\'Oc Les Bateaux 1998 (87 points, $6)

A delicious and sinewy Syrah, with loads of red plum, berry and red cherry flavors, overlaid with beautifully articulated gamey and leathery notes. There's plenty of backbone and plenty of flavor. Drink now. 10,000 cases made. —James Suckling

Feb. 11, 2000: ZENATO Lugana San Benedetto 1998 (88 points, $10)

The Zenato estate is located on the southern slopes surrounding Lake Garda, protected from the cold Alpine winds. The '98 San Benedetto is a well-made white, made from Trebbiano di Lugana -- a clone of Trebbiano. Smells like a lovely apple pie. Full-bodie —James Suckling

Feb. 10, 2000: JACOB'S CREEK Chardonnay South Eastern Australia 1999 (85 points, $8)

Here—s an easy-drinking Aussie Chard at an everyday price. Light, bright and refreshing for its citrusy apple and peach flavors. Drink now. 122,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Feb. 08, 2000: STONELEIGH Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 1999 (87 points, $11)

This New Zealand Suavignon Blanc has an unusual range of flavors, centering around apricot, orange and lime, with a distinctly herbal character sneaking in on the finish. Drink now. 50,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Feb. 07, 2000: VON HÖVEL Riesling QbA Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Balduin von Hövel 1998 (89 points, $12)

Serious ripeness here for just a QbA-level Riesling, exuding pineapple, honey and apricot aromas and flavors. Everything is balanced, and there's just enough acidity to keep it fresh. Drink now through 2003. 1,500 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
