Oct. 07, 2003: NAVARRO Pinot Noir Mendocino 2001 (89 points, $15)

It's always nice to find a Pinot Noir that won't break the bank. This California version is made in a delicate style, with fragrant floral and rose petal aromas and ripe cherry, raspberry and strawberry flavors that are elegant and refreshing. A terrific —James Laube

Oct. 03, 2003: FATTORIA LE PUPILLE Morellino di Scansano 2002 (88 points, $15)

Sep. 27, 2003: ROSEMOUNT Shiraz Mudgee Hill of Gold 2001 (90 points, $17)

The pro golfer Greg Norman is running a pretty fine wine operation these days. This latest release is firm in texture, generous with its peppery blackberry and lime flavors, echoing a minty note as the flavors linger. Drink now through 2006. 110,000 cases —Harvey Steiman
