Jun. 08, 1999: CHATEAU SOUVERAIN Chardonnay Sonoma County 1997 (90 points, $13)

This California Chardonnay is a winner all around. It's firm and bright, offering a solid, snappy core of citrus and mineral along with pretty pear and apple flavors, all mingling on the long, zingy finish -- and the price is right. Drink now through 2006

Jun. 07, 1999: PLANTAGENET Chardonnay Western Australia Omrah Unoaked 1998 (88 points, $14)

This Aussie Chardonnay is from a winery relatively new to America. Fresh and pure, like biting into a crisp green apple, with overtones of lime, pineapple and spice that come into full bloom on the finish. Very nicely done. Approachable now, best from 200

Jun. 05, 1999: HOGUE Chardonnay Columbia Valley (87 points, $9)

From Washington, here's a pretty Chardonnay at a budget-minded price. Light in texture, it offers bright green apple and spice flavors that linger nicely on the balanced finish. Drink now through 2001. 71,385 cases made.

Jun. 04, 1999: CLINE Zinfandel California 1997 (86 points, $10)

Have a yen for Zin? This one's very nice, and the price is right, too. It's rich and jammy-tasting, with harmonious plum, strawberry, spice and herb-laced flavors, finishing soft. Drink now through 2001. 55,000 cases made.

Jun. 03, 1999: HERMITAGE ROAD Shiraz South Australia 1997 (87 points, $9)

Smooth and silky, this lightweight Shiraz has distinctive black cherry and spice flavors that linger enticingly through the generous finish. At this price and score, it's a solid choice when the occasion calls for multiple bottles. Drink now through 2005.
