Kenwood White Zinfandel 2008
Editorial Reviews for Kenwood White Zinfandel
The nose opens with a bit of dried berry fruit and a nice sage brushy note, topped with spice and ink accents. On the palate, this is rather light bodied with bright, raspberry and red cherry fruit, accented with nice briary spice all laid over a soft bed of tannins with a hint of astringency. Nice earthy spice on finish, which shows dried cherry fruit and moderate length. 86pts

Rating: 83/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. The search for value sometimes leads to happy discovery and at others to real disappointment. Sadly, this bottling is among the latter and, despite its high percentage of Zinfandel, is a thin and dilute wine and is closer in character to generic jug wine than to anything we recognize as varietal.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
Winemaker's Notes: A blend of 85% Zinfandel, 8% Petite Sirah, 4% Syrah, 2% Pinot Noir and 1% Merlot.Our quality, value-priced red wine is made from grapes grown in the best wine regions in California. A delicious red wine with fruit-forward blackberry flavor followed by subtle notes of vanilla, cloves and bay leaf.Enjoy the full, fruit flavors of Kenwood's Red Table Wine with chicken, pasta, veal and pork dishes.
