2000 Murphy-Goode Liar's Dice Zinfandel, Sonoma County ($19.50). The price is a bit daunting, but it's no lie that this is a top-notch red zinfandel. The flavors are concentrated and intense but not ponderous. The texture is smooth and inviting, with no burn despite the 14.5 percent alcohol. The enticing flavors of blackberry, blueberry, herbs and chocolate are followed by refreshing acidity in the finish. Serve with steak, lamb, game or pasta.
