12. Koenig Vineyards 2012 The Devil’s Bedstead Zinfandel, Snake River Valley, $25

Koenig logo vectorZin is a rare commodity in Idaho’s Snake River Valley, but winemaker Greg Koenig proves it belongs amid the Bordeaux, Rhône and Spanish varieties being successfully grown here. This superb example offers aromas of rich, dark, ripe fruit, a hint of earthy minerality and rich spice. The palate explodes with flavors of ripe dark cherry, black raspberry and boysenberry, along with hints of maple syrup and dark chocolate. This is a spectacular example of Zin.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 122 cases
