WINE OF THE WEEK

April 11, 2001|By Michael Dresser

1999 Ravenswood Zinfandel, Vintners Blend ($12). Typically one of the best values in zinfandel, Ravenswood's popular Vintners Blend was a little off-form in the difficult 1998 vintage. But this superb winery has bounced back with maybe its best versions yet. The medium- to full-bodied 1999 Vintners Blend offers exceptional, intense blackberry fruit with hints of blueberry and spices. It compares well with many a $20 zinfandel and would be superb company for pizza, pasta, grilled steaks, lamb or stews.
