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.

Bill Parcells and George Young, who were something of an odd couple when they were working together in the 1980s, are finding life is even more difficult now that they've gone their separate ways in the 1990s.Parcells won two Super Bowls as coach of the New York Giants with the players Young drafted as general manager, but he never stopped grumbling that he didn't have control of the draft. He even complained about the selection in 1990 of Rodney Hampton, who has become a franchise running back.
