$15 to $30

Jan. 21, 2003: CALLAWAY Viognier California Coastal Reserve 2001 (88 points, $15)

More like Sauvignon Blanc than Viognier, but delicious, with a bright, tangy burst of lively passion fruit, lime and grass notes. Fine richness and intensity to the flavors, picking up a ripe peach flavor through the finish. Drink now. 2,925 cases made. S

Jan. 17, 2003: ATTEMS Pinot Grigio Collio 2001 (88 points, $19)

Italy offers a bevy of tasty yet little-known whites. Try this yummy, refreshing Pinot Grigio, with ripe pear, almond paste and mineral character. Clean and well-balanced, with a fresh finish. Drink now. 4,300 cases made. Smart Buys. —James Suckling

Jan. 14, 2003: QUPÉ Syrah Central Coast 2001 (88 points, $15)

Here's a fine introduction to California Syrah. A ripe, fruity style, centered around a core of cherry and rhubarb pie flavors, right down to the crust. Firmly tannic, it can be enjoyed now or cellared short-term. Excellent value. Drink now through 2008. —James Laube

Jan. 13, 2003: ROSENBLUM Petite Sirah Napa Valley Pickett Road 2000 (92 points, $28)

This Zinfandel specialist also makes numerous other wines, and this Petite Sirah is worth tracking down. A mouthpuckering style, ripe, rich and earthy, with layers of blackberry, wild berry, plum and huckleberry. Finishes with a gush of mouthcoating fruit —James Laube

Jan. 02, 2003: EMMOLO Merlot Napa Valley 2000 (88 points, $25)

Intense and concentrated, with blackberry, fresh herb and loads of cedar, mocha and vanilla from toasty oak. Firm tannins persist through the finish. Drink now through 2008. 560 cases made. Smart Buys.
