Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve 2008 Zinfandel, $11.99-$13.99, 87 points, is maroon red with a clear rim.
The aroma has some toasty prune, but is mostly spicy with clove and cinnamon with hints of cedar.
A smooth medium body has good acidity and moderate tannin.
Flavors of plum, mulberry, and tart red currant provide a bounty of fruit without becoming jammy or over-done. The finish is fair, but is a bit chalky with plum, spice, and hint of heat (14.5% alcohol).
