Kenwood Gets The Kinks Out Of Lodi Zinfandel

Kenwood Yulupa Old Vine Lodi 2007 Zinfandel, $9.99, 88 points, is a wonderful rebound from that Plungerhead Lodi Old-Vine 2008 Zinfandel.
The nose was the first tip-off: sweet blackberry and toasted blueberry followed by a dark-ruby color folding into a well balanced combination of white pepper and plum.
I paired this with a peppered tenderloin and a breaded rainbow pepper and spinach baked dough.
The finish diminished quickly, but over-all, Kenwood keeps surprising me with good red wines at very reasonable prices.
So, the Lodi Appellation comes through with a good Zinfandel at a good price, proving I'm not just an elitist Grinch, and that Claire-uncorked, has the experience and advice to keep this newbie in line; thanks Claire.
