Beringer Stone Cellars Chardonnay 2001 (California)
$13.95 (General list)
Winemaker Ron Schrieve calls it his Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay "with training wheels." (The Private Reserve is $49 at Vintages stores.) Stone Cellars is Beringer's entry-level label, a bargain at contemporary California prices. Straw coloured with a spicy, sweet apple, pear and caramel nose; medium to full-bodied, forward apple and peach flavour with pineapple notes and a lively citrus finish. ***˝
Food match: pasta with cream sauce; roast chicken

Beringer Founder's Estate Merlot 2000 (California)
$19.95 (General List)
Founder's Estate is Beringer's second-tier label, and you won't find a better California Merlot at this price. Ruby coloured with a nose of vanilla, cedar, blackberry with a floral top note; medium-bodied, firmly structured, well balanced, sweet blackberry-blueberry fruit a soft tannic finish. Very approachable now. ****
Food match: lamb chops; pepper steak

Colio Harrow Estate Chardonnay 2002 (Lake Erie North Shore)
$8.95 (General List)
Carlo Negri manages to make under-$10 wines taste much better than their price. Pale straw colour with an apple peel and citrus bouquet; fresh, dry, medium-bodied with a crisp, clean, apple flavour and good length. ***˝
Food match: poached haddock; seafood salad
