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.

2012 Concrete

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

"Head-trained old-vine Zinfandel vineyards planted in the early 1900s continue to flourish as experienced in this lush, mouth-generous smooth operator. Fermented in a combination of 75-year-old concrete tanks and 60-gallon new and used French and American oak barrels. Winemakers Barry Gnekow and Joseph Smith produced a jewel. As bold as it is reserved, the bramble, oak and boysenberry notes are spiced with cinnamon espresso."

2014 Joel Gott

  • Zinfandel
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"This is a full-bodied but also subtle and complex-flavored wine. The aromas bring in mild wood smoke and black-pepper notes, then the flavors add ample fruitiness without going to jamminess. The overall effect is one of sophistication."

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."

2014 Robert Biale

  • Zinfandel
  • Black Chicken
  • Napa Valley
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Lastly, the 2014 Zinfandel Black Chicken (its name coming from the code name used when ordering a jug of Zinfandel during the Prohibition era) is another relatively big-boned effort at 15.3% alcohol. Gorgeously proportioned, textured and almost chewy, this stunningly hedonistic and fleshy, flamboyant wine delivers abundant glycerin, fruit, quality and personality. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. "
