$15 to $30

May. 21, 2001: PAUL BLANCK Tokay Pinot Gris Alsace Grand Cru Furstentum 1998 (92 points, $30)

Aromas of violets and roses are a prelude to this wine's initial sweetness, which boosts the floral, hazelnut and citrus flavors. Round and soft, it firms up a little on the finish. A touch of bitter grapefruit reins it in. Drink now through 2004. —Bruce Sanderson

May. 17, 2001: ROSEMOUNT Grenache-Syrah-Mourvèdre McLaren Vale GSM 1998 (90 points, $26)

From one of Australia—s most popular wineries comes this plush, rich-textured red blend. It offers layers of cherry, blueberry, spice and a touch of earthiness. Complex and beautifully rounded. It's tempting now, but it has the length to grow in the cel —Harvey Steiman

May. 01, 2001: RUTHERFORD GROVE Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1999 (92 points, $28)

There's wonderful depth and complexity to this rich red as it reveals its ripe currant, black cherry, cedar, anise and blackberry. Finishes with a mouthful of lively fruit and a long, integrated aftertaste. Best from 2002 through 2012. 2,010 cases made. —James Laube

Apr. 20, 2001: ROSEMOUNT Chardonnay Hunter Valley Show Reserve (87 points, $18)

From an Australian winery that needs no introduction, comes this soft, round and generous Chardonnay. Has a nice core of ripe pear, orange and spice, aside from a touch of burnt rubber. A stylish wine with distinctive character. Drink now through 2005. 8, —Harvey Steiman

Apr. 13, 2001: THOMAS FOGARTY Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains 1998 (92 points, $23)

Bucking the trend of the difficult '98 vintage in California, here's an outstanding '98 Chardonnay. Sleek and elegant, boasting rich, clean, vibrant and exotic pear, pineapple, guava and citrus flavors that sail on the finish. Drink now through 2004. 1,24 —James Laube
