(KCBS) – Calling all wine aficionados: here are two appealing zinfandels, and at nice prices as well.

The 2009 Ravenswood Old Vine Zinfandel from Sonoma County is bright, fresh, with ripe fruit aromas that lead to a cheerful mouthful of wine. The wine has lots of fruit flavors and a fine balance of tannins that creates a delicious backbone.

It’s an easy-to-drink wine that would be perfect with grilled meats or a rich, flavored pasta. It’s a field blend of zinfandel with some other grapes.

It’s priced at $15.99, which is a nice price considering the quality of the drink.

The 2010 Renwood Winery Old Vine Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley offers delicious color, delicious bouquet, delicious taste, and a delicious price too.

This wine has rich crimson color, spicy ripe berry aromas and a balanced, mellow mouthful of wine. It’s soft and easy to drink, and all around very satisfying – as is the price at just $19.99.
