Jul. 28, 1999: HYATT Cabernet-Merlot Yakima Valley 1997 (87 points, $10)

A nice, compact red blend, with pretty raspberry, currant and spice notes on a modest scale; flavors linger nicely on the smooth finish. Drink now through 2001. 3,000 cases made.

Jul. 27, 1999: COLUMBIA CREST Chardonnay Columbia Valley Estate Series 1997 (91 points, $11)

From a winery synonymous for well-priced offerings comes this Washington state Chardonnay. Smooth and generous, artfully balanced to show plenty of pear, spice and coconut flavors that meld pleasantly with a hint of beeswax on the long, rich finish. Drink

Jul. 26, 1999: COLUMBIA CREST Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley (88 points, $11)

Firm, chewy, even a little rough around the edges, but ripe currant and blackberry flavors shine through and linger on the generous finish. Best from 2000 through 2006. 122,000 cases made.

Jul. 23, 1999: ARBOR CREST Merlot Washington (86 points, $11)

Bright and flavorful, a jazzy red with pretty cherry and currant flavors shaded with spicy tones. Fine tannins don't get in the way. Drink now through 2002. 6,000 cases made.

Jul. 19, 1999: CONCANNON Chardonnay Central Coast Selected Vineyard 1997 (87 points, $11)

This rich and softly textured California white offers distinctive nut, apple, grapefruit, pear and spicy floral flavors that linger enticingly on the focused finish. A solid value at this price and score. Drink now through 2002. 28,350 cases made.
