1998 Ravenswood Vintners Blend Zinfandel ($14.59).

This lush, soft, intense red wine has edged up in price but still represents one of the better zinfandel values on the market. It offers vibrant flavors of blackberry, herbs, black olives and smoked meat. If memory serves me, it's a significant improvement on Ravenswood's 1997, which was no slouch itself. Give this winery credit: There are few bets in life as solid as buying a Ravenswood zinfandel. Serve it with pizza, steak or pasta.
