2007 Bonny Doon Le Cigare Blanc Price: $22 From: Beeswax Vineyard, Arroyo Seco, Monterey, Calif. Serve with: Salmon, roast poultry, ham This full-bodied, dry white wine from a blend of Rhone Valley grape varieties is impressively complex and plump while still being lively. It offers a rich array of flavors: peaches, tropical fruit, almonds and cherries. It's very true to the style of some of the best white Rhones. Bottled with screw cap, which is a plus.

From: California Price: $16 Serve with: Steak, lamb, pasta This intense, penetrating, spicy red wine is an excellent value in California cabernet. It offers bright black cherry and wild berry fruit and a touch of vanilla. At only two years, it makes for smooth and easy drinking but has the length and body of a much more expensive wine. It is sealed with a device known as a "zork" - a kind of cross between a cork and a screw cap that requires no corkscrew and is a little more elegant than the twist-off closure.

Here's an intense, no-holds-barred sauvignon blanc that isn't for folks who are ambivalent about this bold white varietal. It's very dry, intensely herbal and fresh. There's a complex mix of flavors of figs, grass, lime, minerals and smoke. Wisely bottled under a screw cap. Best drunk over the next year. From: Sonoma County, Calif. Price: $19 Serve with: Shellfish, Creole dishes

2004 Bonny Doon Clos de Gilroy California Grenache ($15). Here's a big, bold but very fruity and youthful red wine that would pair up quite well with turkey or any festive roast. It's loaded with cherry, raspberry, cold-cut and herb flavors. It shows very good grip and a level of tannin that suggests it will improve over the next six months or so. While this is a new wine, it is by no means made in a nouveau style. It has guts. It also has a screw cap - a plus for those who prefer to avoid tainted wine.

This California white wine from the House of Bonny Doon is one of the usual suspects in wine warden Randall Grahm's lineup of high-quality beverages. This clean, crisp, dry yet fruity wine - guarded by a fierce-looking but very protective screw cap - assaults the taster with flavors of pear, citrus fruit, melons, peach, honey and apple. It then finishes off the unsuspecting palate with a shank-thrust of grassy sauvignon blanc - a co-conspirator with viognier, chenin blanc, French colombard, pinot blanc and marsanne in this criminally decadent blend.

This fresh, in-your-face red wine is all about up-front, dynamic fruit. There's nothing laid-back or subtle in this blend of Rhone Valley grapes plus Carignan and Tempranillo — just a ton of raspberry, blackberry and herb flavors cascading over the palate in a glorious rush. It's not a light wine like a Beaujolais, but it has a similar fruity, nontannic appeal. Why wait years to twist off the screw cap when it's so enjoyable right now? (It's only 17 percent of the blend, but this wine screams grenache.

The name is familiar, the price is inexpensive, it has a screw cap and there's a little plastic bull hanging from the neck. Does that mean this garnacha-mazuelo blend is just a flighty little pink wine? Hardly. It's bone dry, very serious and up there with the best rose wines on the market. The wine has a deep raspberry color and a floral aroma to go along with flavors of strawberries, cherries, rosehips and tropical fruits. It's best drunk this summer but will probably hold up better than most pink wines.
