Two years ago, the 2000 version of this wine was recommended in this space. It's a pleasure to report that Guenoc has maintained its high standards with this under-rated red varietal. This year's version is full-bodied and intense. It offers a complex mix of blackberry, chocolate, herb and coffeelike flavors. And while it's quite drinkable now, it shows every sign of being able to age for a decade. Serve with hearty stews, roast beef, game.

MIAMI -- Tornadoes roared through central Florida before dawn yesterday, tearing roofs off houses, flattening a church built to withstand hurricanes and throwing people from their beds into lakes and piles of debris. At least 19 people died in the flash of destruction that hit while they slept. While thunderstorms and the tornadoes they spawn are common throughout Florida year-round, the blast that gathered over the northern Gulf of Mexico late Thursday and swept across the state between 3 and 4 a.m. was the deadliest in nearly a decade.

TAVARES, Fla. - An inspection of more than 6,000 discarded presidential ballots in Lake County, Fla., has revealed that Vice President Al Gore lost a net 130 votes that were clearly his even in a conservative, GOP bastion that President-elect George W. Bush dominated as a whole. The tally of uncounted ballots Monday by the Orlando Sentinel was the first outside review to be completed in any Florida county since the U.S. Supreme Court halted a statewide recount Dec. 9. At that point, Bush's ever-fluctuating lead over Gore was 154 votes, and the margin might have been shaved to two dozen had the Lake ballots been counted.

The domestic-violence case involving Ravens right tackle Leon Searcy will be diverted to a pretrial intervention program, a Lake County (Fla.) state attorney spokeswoman said yesterday. The agreement essentially puts Searcy on six months' probation, requiring him to avoid any violent contact with his wife, Sonya, and undergo anger management training. If he successfully completes the program, the battery charges against him will be dropped. His probation also can be reduced to three months after a review by the state probation board.

HOWARD COUNTY is especially known for two things in Maryland: Pride in the high quality of its schools and Columbia, the "new town" created on the principle of inclusiveness. Both appear threatened, judging by the recent report that white parents in Columbia are pulling their children out of a diverse, older middle school and pooling nearly $40,000 to bus them to a newer, less diverse school just outside the unincorporated, planned city.The news is alarming: It suggests an erosion of confidence in Howard schools.
