WINE OF THE WEEK

January 02, 2002|By Michael Dresser

1999 Francis Coppola "Diamond Series" Zinfandel ($14). This medium-bodied, ready-to-drink California red wine isn't a Sonoma-style blockbuster but a fruity, soft-textured zin with plenty of black currant and black cherry fruit. It's a zinfandel that should appeal to devotees of merlot, though this wine has more spiciness. This versatile red would go well with a wide range of red meat and pasta dishes.
