1997 Beringer LVS North Coast White Zinfandel ($11).

Beringer's standard white zinfandel is a big commercial success, but it's a bit too sweet and obvious to please those who like a drier touch. The LVS bottling (for Limited Vineyard Selection) is a white zinfandel for those of who generally don't like white zins. This dry, crisp pink wine is reminiscent of some of the fine roses of Provence, but with a hint of strawberry flavor. With its good length and excellent freshness, it would be a delightful companion to cold ham served on a hot afternoon.
