WINE OF THE WEEK

October 06, 2004|By Michael Dresser

2002 Handley Cellars Zinfandel, Redwood Valley ($20). California's Mendocino County tends to produce a style of zinfandel far different from the blockbuster style that prevails in neighboring Sonoma County. The wines generally emphasize elegance over sheer power, and this wine from the reliable Handley winery is a good example. It offers generous black-raspberry fruit and a touch of black pepper. It finishes long and clean and would be an excellent companion to red meat, hard cheese or pasta dishes.
