Mar. 05, 2004: CHÂTEAU HAUT-BAGES-LIBÉRAL Pauillac 2001 (91 points, $20)

Black cherries with fresh basil on the nose open to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a medium finish. A solid wine with a good core of fruit and tannins. Best after 2008. 10,000 cases made. Smart Buys. From France. —James Suckling

Extremely pretty, with currant and blackberry character and hints of toasty oak. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a long finish. Best after 2006. 1,300 cases made. —James Suckling

Mar. 03, 2004: CHÂTEAU D'AGASSAC Haut-Médoc 2001 (89 points, $19)

This is very pretty, with plum and currant character on the nose and palate. Medium-bodied, with velvety tannins and a sweet fruit finish. Delicious. Best after 2008. 13,750 cases made. Smart Buys. From France. —James Suckling

Feb. 27, 2004: VIÑA CARMEN Sauvignon Blanc Casablanca Valley Reserve 2002 (88 points, $15)

Quite rich, yet stays fresh, with zesty lemon curd, orange blossom and straw flavors and a bouncy finish. Delicious. Drink now. 7,800 cases made. From Chile. —James Molesworth

Feb. 24, 2004: VIÑA SANTA RITA Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley Medalla Real Special Reserve 2000 (88 points, $18)

Traditional in style, with lots of dried currant, tar, loam and coffee notes, this still has plenty of guts, with firm but ripe tannins holding sway over the finish. A bit brutish, but should come alive with a hearty cassoulet. Drink now through 2005. 23, —James Molesworth
