Jan. 29, 2003: CONCHA Y TORO Carmenère Peumo Valley Terrunyo 2000 (90 points, $29)

Concha y Toro has really stepped up the quality of its higher-end wines, as this delicious Carmenère shows. Lovely flesh and balance here, with ripe blackberry and plum flavors, suave toast, and a long, creamy finish that delivers another wave of fruit. —James Molesworth

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
