From: Lodi, Calif Price: $14 Serve with: Beef short ribs, lamb shanks This full-bodied red wine packs a flavorful punch, even if it isn't the most elegant cabernet in California. It offers a full measure of cassis, black raspberry and blackberry fruit, with hints of chocolate cake and coffee. This is not a wine to serve with rack of lamb or beef filet, but would make a wonderful match with some of the less-exalted cuts of red meat. There's lots of burly charm here at an excellent price.

From: Sonoma County, Calif. Price: $14 Serve with: Grilled seafood In contrast with the many thin and harsh sauvignon blancs on the market, this well-made dry white wine is full-bodied and creamy in texture while retaining a certain herbal edginess. Its fascinating array of flavors includes chalk and other minerals, pear, lime and dill. Very fresh and youthful, it's an excellent choice for outdoor summer occasions.

From: North Coast, California Price: $15 Serve with: Steaks on the grill, leg of lamb With Father's Day coming up, what better choice than a bold, well-price cabernet sauvignon made as a tribute to the winemaker's father? Josh Cellars is named for Joseph Carr's dad, who bore that nickname. This full-bodied but smoothly textured wine delivers moderately complex flavors of black currant, black cherry, chocolate and spices. It's fully drinkable now but could age for at least five years.

Here's a dry white wine for all seasons. It has the freshnes and raciness to serve at poolside on a hot day, but also the deep mineral, juniper and herb flavors that will keep its fascinating year-round. The flavors are gripping, intense and long on the palate. With this wine, Sanford further entrenches its reputation as one of California's finest wineries.

2002 Allan Scott Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough ($10). This bright, fresh white wine is more toned down than some of the more radically herbal New Zealand sauvignon blancs. (I like them, but they're definitely an acquired taste.) That doesn't mean it sacrifices character. It's herbal enough, and it offers a deliciously fresh, sweet pea flavor and generous fruit. This wine would be well-matched with white-fleshed fish or shellfish, and its bargain price ensures it will have broad appeal.

From: Horse Heaven Hills, Washington Price: $30 Serve with: Roast beef, leg of lamb The red wines out of Washington state just seem to get better and better. Maybe it's climate change, but this state is increasingly closing the gap with the Napa Valley in cabernet quality. This wine is a riveting, intensely flavored red with penetrating black cherry, game, wild berry and herb flavors. Despite its youth, it's quite drinkable but with the backbone for long aging. My apologies for recommending another pricey red wine, but this one more than earns its price.

From: Central Coast, Calif. Price: $15 Serve with: Grilled seafood This is a substantial, well-crafted dry white wine that offers a lot of complexity. This full-bodied sauvignon blanc displays flavors of figs, mint, lime, pears and herbs. With its intensity and long finish, it certainly punches above its weight class. -- Michael Dresser

From: Rapel Valley, Chile Price: $12 Serve with: Smoked salmon, shellfish This is a very subtle sauvignon blanc, with little of the pronounced grassy flavor found in many California versions. It's a deliciously smoky white wine - hence the perfect pairing with the salmon - and a light herbal quality that adds flavor interest without dominating the wine. It's a well-rounded, fresh wine with hints of lime, mint, figs and kiwi fruit. There's a lot of complexity here for a relatively inexpensive wine.
