Jess Jackson Would Have Been Proud 2006 Zinfandel Vintner's Reserve

Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve 2006 Zinfandel, $12.00, 89 points, is as good as it gets at this price point for a very good Zinfandel wine, though not a typical Zin at this stage of its life, but with a beautiful dark ruby-red color and an aroma of cinnamon spice and just a hint of peppermint candy-cane, with a very smooth, but not lush feel, and a delicious flavor, but only a fair finish, this wine still "rocks" as a "red table wine" or as a standalone sipper.
I paired it with a Gruyere cheese and hot sopresata pizza.
