The news of Julius Rudel's death on Thursday at the age of 93 sent a sad wave through the music world. This first-rate conductor, impresario and gentleman left a huge mark, especially for his long stewardship of the New York City Opera. For a lot of us, remembering Mr. Rudel's legacy means remembering that of stellar soprano Beverly Sills, too. They did some amazing work together. And sublime, nowhere more so than in their recording of "Marietta's Lied" from Korngold's "Die tote Stadt.

We could retire this award right here. Marietta Old Vines, one of California's best-kept secrets, has been praised in these pages for several years now, and there's never been a reason to regret the choice. Each year it seems to get better. Lot 16, perhaps the best of the series, has intense blackberry flavors with touches of blueberry, coffee and chocolate. The level of complexity far outstrips the price. I just wish the winery shipped more into Maryland.

Longtime readers of this feature have probably noticed a pattern here: another year, another Marietta rave. No, the winemaker is not my cousin, it's just that Marietta Old Vine is one of California's greatest wine values. Supplies of this wine can get spotty, but astute wine merchants buy every case they can of this full-bodied, meaty red wine with concentrated blackberry fruit and delicious herbal overtones. Ignore the lack of a varietal name or vintage -- this wine should be stockpiled by the case, especially if you can find a retailer who will come close to the $6.46 a bottle price advertised in D.C.

Bigger is better. That's what Bethesda-based Martin Marietta Corp. is betting.If approved, as is expected, Martin's proposed $3.05 billion acquisition of General Electric Corp.'s aerospace division will make it the nation's second-largest defense contractor. Annual sales are expected to jump to about $11 billion, up from the $6.08 billion Martin reported at the end of 1991.Martin's strategy for the new year: Go for a bigger slice of the Pentagon pie. Although defense spending has been under attack, the Defense Department still spends $100 billion a year on such things as rockets, tanks and night vision gear for fighter planes.

ATLANTA - Today's vote by striking Lockheed Martin Corp. Machinists could decide whether military aircraft production continues in Marietta, Ga. - and influence the fate of the most technologically advanced fighter ever built. Labor experts predict the 2,800 members of International Association of Machinists Local 709 will narrowly approve the deal after a week on picket lines. But if they convincingly reject the tentative agreement endorsed by the union negotiating team over the weekend, Lockheed could face a prolonged strike and move to hire permanent replacements.
