2008 LeVois Zinfandel

photo (11)I may not know much about wine, but I know a ton about sniffing out wine deals. I found this small production gem from a now-defunct winery at World Market, and while I wasn’t even remotely curious at full price, I decided to give it a spin at the clearance price of $8.50.

Shazam! This is real-deal Dry Creek Valley Zin, brambles and berry and earth and a really healthy acidic streak despite its years in the bottle.

It’s drinking perfectly right now but with years ahead of it. I’d be tempted by the winery price of $35 or so. At the closeout price, I’m buying everything I see.

Buy it if you find it.

Wine: A-
Value: A+


About davetalkswine

I like to drink and write about wine. I'm an equal opportunity drinker, but gravitate toward France, the Pacific Northwest and up-and-comers like New York and Virginia.
