1998 Monterra Syrah, Monterey ($14). This lush, ripe red wine is a good approximation of the style of the fine wines of France's Rhone Valley. Quite full-bodied, it offers generous flavors of blackberry, chocolate, herbs and smoked meat. Its lush, soft texture makes it immediately appealing, but there's plenty of tannic backbone to keep it developing for five to 10 years. Serve with hearty red meat or pasta dishes.

The National Aquarium Institute has tapped a California aquarium industry veteran to be the organization's next CEO. John C. Racanelli, 55, will be expected to increase the ocean conservation and educational messages delivered through the National Aquariums in Baltimore and Washington. Visitors should see some physical improvements in the public exhibit areas, too, according to the board chairwoman, Jennifer Reynolds. The new CEO will also take over the organization's key fundraising role, including the $50 million capital campaign for construction of a new National Aquarium building on the Mall in Washington.

MONTEREY, Calif. - -Dawn is coming soon. The lights are off, the sound system silent and the beasts of the Monterey Bay Aquarium have the place mostly to themselves: the otters, the anemones, the octopuses, the great white shark in the big tank, the lame young albatross in its rooftop cage - and Kacey Kurimura, who's at the kitchen sink in her apron and waterproof boots, reaching for a knife. Maybe the sea never sleeps, but this is how the day begins at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Before this one is over, 2,881 visitors will troop through, that young shark will fill up on fish, the albatross will dance with a new friend.

1994 Estancia Pinot Noir, Monterey ($13)It's such a pleasure to be able to enjoy pure pinot noir fruit flavor without having to break into Fort Knox. The Estancia gives a spicy California twist to the characteristic black cherry flavors of pinot noir, but there's nothing wrong with that. With this wine, Estancia once again demonstrates that it is one of California's most reliable providers of moderately priced wines of high quality.Pub Date: 7/28/96

2001 Hahn Estates Merlot, Monterey ($12). This plump, chewy merlot exhibits a soft texture but has plenty of structure underneath. Its rich flavors of blackberry, chocolate and herbs give it more of a resemblance to syrah than to cabernet sauvignon. This merlot, which compares well with Napa Valley counterparts that sell for $20 and up, would pair well with roast chicken or red meat.

This lush 50-50 blend of grenache and syrah is a thoroughly satisfying Rhone-style red wine. Both fruity and substantial, it offers intense and penetrating flavors of blackberry, black raspberry and herbs. It finishes with a good dollop of acidity, keeping it lively through the finish. Serve with grilled steak.

1997 Monterra Merlot. Monterey County ($10). This extraordinary value is the jewel of a stunning line of budget-priced wines from the Delicato Monterey winery, which expects to be doing a big rollout of its Monterra line this summer. It's a huge, ripe merlot with forceful black cherry and chocolate flavor. Behind the chunkiness is an impressive structure, suggesting a better-than-average potential for aging. Based on other tastings, it appears merlot's future in Monterey is as bright as anywhere in California.

1997 Monterey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. Monterey County ($8).This well-made, medium-bodied cabernet offers a lot of class for a very reasonable price. It shows a good depth of flavor, with ripe blackberry fruit and hints of chocolate and smoked meat. It's a supple wine that's ready to drink now but has enough backbone to last a few years. It shows no signs of heavy-handed processing -- a rarity in this price range for California wines. The winery's suggested retail price is $6.99, but that might be optimistic for East Coast stores.

One of the bitter ironies of the 20th century was that communism, which began as an egalitarian doctrine accusing capitalism of selfishness and callousness toward others, became in power a system whose selfishness and callousness made the sins of capitalism pale. The ruling elites of the Soviet Union, called the nomenklatura, had their own separate and superior stores where ordinary citizens were not allowed to shop, their own separate and superior medical facilities and their own separate and superior living quarters, all off limits to the masses.

MONTEREY POP and JIMI PLAYS MONTEREY & SHAKE! OTIS AT MONTEREY -- Criterion -- $29.95 each It's almost impossible not to shed a tear while watching Monterey Pop, D.A. Pennebaker's transcendent celebration of the 1967 Monterey International Pop Festival. The festival itself, spread over three northern California days, was the first and the truest manifestation of what would become known as the Summer of Love, and that alone can make watching the film an emotional experience - a recollection of lost innocence for those of a certain age. If the spirit of the times alone doesn't get to you, then maybe the music will.

At the small New England school where my husband teaches, graduation week is one of the most anticipated of the year. You can feel the buzz on campus. Seniors walk with a certain swagger. They've just finished four years of hard work, reading an infinite number of books, cramming for lab tests and pulling all-nighters to get papers in on time. Finally, it's time for celebration. I often get calls from students (especially those who love to cook) asking for advice about planning graduation parties or what to serve, and I love helping.

Bruce Ariss unlocks a dank wooden box of a building, releasing the musty scent of fish and stale beer as California sunlight washes in off Monterey Bay.The rays illuminate the scuffed plank floors, splintery walls and beamed ceilings that form "Doc" Ricketts' lab, a rustic hideaway essentially unchanged since being immortalized in "Cannery Row."For Mr. Ariss, 83, crossing the threshold is a journey back to the sardine-canning days when friend John Steinbeck visited Doc's lab to absorb for his novels the lives of locals, whom he then called "whores, pimps, gamblers and sons of bitches."
