Feb. 17, 2000: CLINE Côtes d\'Oakley Vin Blanc California 1998 (89 points, $9)

This California white is made from an uncommon blend of Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Sémillon and others. Lots of fun, rich and gooey, with fresh fennel, papaya, tangerine and melon flavors that are refreshing, not cloying. Drink now through 2002. 4,00 —James Laube

Feb. 16, 2000: STEVENOT Chardonnay Sierra Foothills (85 points, $10)

Here—s a very good California Chardonnay at an easygoing price. Clean and ripe, with tasty pear and mineral flavors, turning pretty on the finish. Drink now through 2004. 6,800 cases made. —James Laube

Feb. 15, 2000: BELISARIO Verdicchio di Matelica I Ritratti 1998 (86 points, $8)

This Verdicchio from Italy—s Marches region is an aromatic and lively white, with aromas of flowers and honey plus hints of melon. Medium-bodied, with fresh acidity and a crisp finish. Drink now. 42,000 cases made. —James Suckling

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
