Best Zinfandel Rated 90+ Points For Every Budget

While so many other wines having their roots in European soils, Zinfandel is often referred to as America’s Heritage Grape. The best Zinfandel seems to shine at its most powerful in the vineyards of California. Regions like Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma and Paso Robles continuously produce Zinfandel wines with jammy fruit flavors of blueberries and blackberries with smooth, luscious tannins. (Read More)

The old vine Zinfandel roots that still exist in California today are a holdover from prohibition days where Zinfandel was still consumed for communion wine. During the first American Wine Boom in the late 1800’s, Zinfandel was the most widely planted varietal and at one point was planted to almost 50,000 acres. Be sure to browse the best Zinfandel wines rated 90+ points and read expert descriptions about each bottle to quench your palate.

2013 Michael David Winery

  • Zinfandel
  • The Seven Deadly Zins
  • Lodi
  • Old Vine
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"A softer, more lush and voluptuous texture can be found in the 2013 7 Deadly Zins, which is also 100% Zinfandel from Lodi. To produce such a high-volume wine of this quality is pretty remarkable winemaking. Loads of ripeness, fruit, glycerin and medium to full-bodied silky mouthfeel make for a delicious effort."

2013 Seghesio

  • Zinfandel
  • Old Vine
  • Sonoma Coast
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Grippy in wound-up black fruit and black pepper, this is a ripe, bright and softly layered wine, completely in keeping with its old-vine status in dusty, complex notes. Spicy cinnamon and leathery pepper combine on the lengthy finish"

2014 Bedrock

  • Zinfandel
  • Old Vine
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Deep, rich and luscious, with plenty of up-front fruit and tons of appeal. More of a field blend than a true Zinfandel, the 2014 is soft and forward, with expressive red-fleshed fruit, bright acidity and terrific overall balance. The Old Vine is 77% Zinfandel and a generous 23% mixed blacks. Best of all, the Old Vine Zinfandel is a fabulous value."

2015 Bedrock

  • Zinfandel
  • Esola Vineyard
  • Amador County
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Theis comes from the heart of Amador. This is a big, briary, beefy, muscular wine with a full body, plenty of heady red and black fruits, tar, earth and pepper. It is a beauty and the fruit is where it’s at – as it is pure and rich, following through for at least 45+ seconds on the palate."

2013 Amapola Creek

  • Zinfandel
  • Monte Rosso Vineyards
  • Sonoma
  • Vinas Antiguas
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"From the famous Monte Rosso red soil vineyard, two Zinfandels were produced. This is a great buy! Made from 123-year-old head-pruned vines, the wine has a dense ruby/purple color, a big, sweet kiss of black cherry, blackcurrant and blackberry with some dusty, loamy soil undertones and pepper as well as hints of charcuterie and spice. It is full-bodied, lavishly rich, and stunningly pure. It should make a savory mouthful for at least a decade."

2013 Michael David

  • Zinfandel
  • Lust
  • Lodi
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"The Lust is a whopper with pure, rich, full-bodied black cherry fruit, incense, camphor and a touch of toasty oak. It is concentrated, thick and juicy. This is a big, powerful, heady wine that, remarkably, is not the least bit hot or overripe in spite of rather incredible levels of potency."

2013 Michael David

  • Zinfandel
  • Sloth
  • Lodi
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"The 2013 Zinfandel Sloth is even better, but production is much smaller, at only 291 cases. This is a stunner, with blueberry and black raspberry fruit, earthy, loamy soil undertones, a touch of pepper and smoked meats. Even a barbecue note seems to make an appearance in this beauty to drink over the next 7-8 years."

2013 Seghesio

  • Zinfandel
  • Cortina
  • Sonoma
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"This wine, which comes from their lowest yielding, dry farmed vineyards, exhibits perhaps the deepest level of fruit intensity, with loads of raspberries, black cherries, some spice, a full-bodied earthiness, but a long, layered finish. This is probably one of my favorites of this grouping."
