10 Top Zinfandel Values Tasted 9/2014

6. Kendall-Jackson Zinfandel Vintner's Reserve California (2012)

« Prev Next » 6 of 10
Average price: $14.99 from 7 stores
Sweet cherry fruit laced with vanilla, cola, and softly toasted spicy aromas greet the nose. An interesting wine that is perhaps a touch sweet but offers an attractive blend of very-ripe plum date and black cherry flavors that are backed up with complicating notes of bitter spices and herbs and well integrated wood. The tannins build on the palate and this has a hint of black currant in the mouth, which along with the herbal character lends this a slightly Cabernet like tone on the palate, but this remains distinctly Zin like with power, weight, and complexity in the mouth and a rather long if slightly stick finish. 87pts
