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

Jul. 05, 2001: BAROSSA VALLEY ESTATE Chardonnay South Australia 1998 (87 points, $10)

Smooth and generous with its nutmeg-scented pear and cream flavors, round and refined through the finish as the flavors echo, this is a good example from Australia's ever-improving Chardonnay scene, for still a reasonable price. Drink now through 2004. 10 —Harvey Steiman

Jun. 25, 2001: HERON Merlot California 1999 (85 points, $12)

Great bang for the buck with this round and soft California Merlot, with good intensity to the pleasant flavors of plum, currant and cranberry, underscored by soft tannins. Drink now through 2003. 7,000 cases made.

Jun. 21, 2001: TIEFENBRUNNER Pinot Grigio Venezie 1999 (85 points, $12)

This fresh and lively medium-bodied white from Veneto boasts a pineappley nose, a good backbone of minerals, and fresh acidity that lasts through the finish-all at a budget-conscious price. Drink now. 15,000 cases made. —James Suckling

Jun. 18, 2001: FRANZ HAAS Pinot Grigio Venezie Kris 1999 (85 points, $10)

This Italian Pinot Grigio shows good fruit, its apple, cream and honey character couched in a medium-bodied frame, with fresh acidity and a medium finish. It's a nice bottle, and won't leave you skint. Drink now. 2,080 cases made. —James Suckling
