    Since 2002 the folks who run Hess Family Estates have sneakily released one of the best affordable Mendocino County Zinfandels on the market: Artezin. From a selection of old vines from a few selected vineyards every year, this Zin has always delivered the fruit and lift so commonly found in Mendocino Zinfandel. The 2014 vintage of this wine maybe the best I’ve ever seen, with dark briary berry notes, whole peppercorn spice and a subtle and lengthy finish. Aged all in French oak, this has so much complexity and drive that it is really hard to believe that the winery is making any money here at the ridiculous price point of $12.99.

    Old Vine Mendo Zin? Count me in, especially at less than fifteen bucks. These are spicy and forward, boasting notes of white pepper, dark fruit preserve, cocoa and a touch of grip on the back end. Very complex wine for the money.

    Mendocino Valley Old Vine Zinfandel from the Hess winemakers at $13?! Sign us up! Full of lush and jammy blackberry and blueberry fruits, cracked black pepper, slight tanin, and enough acid to keep it from being over the top, this wine is a no brainer for zin fans.
    Top Value!

    This might be one of the best Zinfandel's we have for under $15. Ample amounts of plum and fig fill this full bodied red. Hints of cedar, blackberries, and licorice round it out, while the juicy acid makes it bright and vibrant.
