2001 Morgan Sauvignon Blanc, Monterey County ($14). This well-made, full-bodied dry white wine provides the classic herbal, gooseberry flavors of sauvignon tempered by 50 percent barrel fermentation to create a smooth texture. There's good peach, apple and citrus fruit with a well-integrated dollop of oak and a good bite in the finish. This would go well with grilled swordfish or salmon.

Bagged spinach from fields outside California are turning up on Maryland grocery store shelves again as federal officials work to assure consumers that the nationwide E. coli outbreak has been limited to tainted produce from just three California counties. Landover-based Giant Food began restocking its produce section yesterday with a Giant-brand savoy spinach that customers have seen before, according to company spokesman Jamie Miller. "The spinach comes from Colorado and Canada," he said, "so we made the decision to put it back on our shelves in response to information received from the Food and Drug Administration stating that spinach produced outside of the three counties they're focusing on is safe for consumers."

1995 McDowell Grenache Rose, Monterey County ($10).California pink wines normally should be drunk in their first year, but this rose is holding up especially well. It's a bright pink wine with gripping cherry and strawberry fruit seasoned with a nuance of herbes de Provence. This bone-dry, long, complex product is one of the world's finest roses.Pub Date: 4/20/97

1998 Villa Mt. Eden Coastal Chardonnay, Monterey County ($9.49). This fruity, lively, well-crafted chardonnay shows the virtues of a cool vineyard region. It offers nuances of apple, orange and white pepper, with vibrant acidity. If you are a serious chardonnay lover, consider stocking up on this terrific value. The wine should hold up well through 2000.

1996 Estancia Pinnacles Pinot Noir, Monterey County ($11).This is not a classic Burgundian pinot noir but a distinctly Californian style with lush, black-cherry fruit, a hint of smoked meat, a touch of mint and an earthy richness. This medium- to full-bodied red wine will likely improve over the next year or two. Try it with grilled tuna or roast chicken or game hens.Pub Date: 10/26/97@

1997 Pacific Rim Gewurztraminer, Monterey County ($12).Pacific Rim is one of the seemingly endless supply of labels used by Randall Grahm, the mad genius of Bonny Doon winery. Here he uses it for a dry gewurztraminer that is one of the best to come out of California. Its structure and spicy flavors might not exactly replicate the flavors of an Alsace wine, but they come pretty close. This lively white wine with hints of tropical fruit, pears and cloves would be an excellent match with spicy Asian cuisine such as Sichuan-style kung pao chicken.
