Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Zinfandel from Kendall Jackson opens with a brambly boysenberry and black raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, juicy and nicely coats your mouth. The flavors profile is a ripe black raspberry with notes of blackberry and mild old oak. I also detected hints of expresso and touch of anise in the background. The finish is dry and nicely prolonged. KJ continues to improve its "Vintner's Reserve" red program. This Zin is a very good example of their success. I would enjoy this with slow-cooked barbecue beef brisket sliders. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Plum, raspberry jam and blackberry flavors are supported with solid chalky tannins in this Zinfandel. Sultry cedar and spice accents linger on this captivating, long-finishing wine.
