    Here's a few that jump to mind:

    RIDGE. Everything they do is KILLER good IMHO.

    CLINE. Really good budget bottling, and the higher stuff is great too. Nice tart cranberry and peppery character.

    ROSENBLUM.
    Lots of bottlings from different appellations, but pretty reliable in general. Some of the higher ones are AWESOME.

    RAVENSWOOD.
    Pretty good stuff at a that lower price-point.

    And EDMEADES. BIG... ASS... ZINS. Some over 17% alcohol, but surprisingly good balance considering.

    Tobin James is a good brand. I had Murphy Goode Liars Dice a couple of months ago that was fantastic.

    Look for Sonoma Valley, Russian River or Lodi Zins. Apparently that is the best place to grow Old Vine Zinfandels.

    My favorite is Gnarley Head because I am cheap. Can pick it up at Cost Plus World Market for like $12.

    Segheisio is another good one I have tried but it is more expensive, like $25.

    TJs: Rocking Horse and Falcon Ridge both about $6 if I remember correctly. I would drink these before the Peachy Canyon Incredible Red. Black Mountain in a pinch for a fiver.

    Costco: Peachy Canyon Westside Vineyard $12 and worth every penny.

    I'll chip in with EOS zinfandel. Nice rich mouthfeel and bright with berries, jam and spices (have it all the time with grilled beef).

    It's conveniently available at markets with decent wine sections and the price (depending on whether or not it is a sale item) ranges from $8.99 - $15.99.

    My all-time favorite is (was, since it is apparently no longer made) Zoom zinfandel. It was made by Rosenblum's winemaker using grapes from 106 year-old vines. Most complex wine I've ever had. If you ever run across a bottle somewhere, give it a try. It was a steal for $25 (the price I used to pay for it).
