This is one of those "Smells like walking into a Cinnabon" wines. Pure buttered/glazed strudel or pastry aroma. This wine is pretty sweet, and very fruity. Not much Cinnabon in the actual flavor, just mostly fruit and sweetness. Although it was a little bit buttery, and there was some vanilla. Don't take the fact that I am not rating it highly, as saying it's bad. It just doesn't fit my personal tastes. But if you are a fan of the buttered-pastry smelling wines. and a fan of big fruit, and some sweetness, this is a wine for you. But for me, it didn't fit the typical "Cab" profile. No big tannins to speak of. Note: this is for the "Jackson Estates" Sonoma County version

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Reserve explodes from the glass with black fruit, grilled herbs, licorice, smoke and tar. The Grand Reserve reveals tons of energy and exceptional overall balance. In 2009 the blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, all from the Alexander Mountain Estate Vineyard. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2016.

This supple, graceful red shows medium-weight currant, mineral, black licorice and spice notes. Well-proportioned, ending clean and pure. Drink now through 2018.

A solid Cabernet, offering plenty of savory blackberry, cola and spice flavors that finish dry and wholesome.

A soft, cushioned red with the earthy, herbal scents of cabernet, this is plush, quiet, simple and pleasing. Pour it with lamb.

Kendall-Jackson Grand Reserve Cabernet is amazing because of the value it offers at the price. Considering the huge case production, it is astonishing that they can produce a wine with hallmark Cabernet character.

'Opens with deep black cherry, blackberry and cassis flavors. Intense, round and well-structured tannins provide a strong backbone throughout the middle. Cedar and vanilla notes linger on the finish, beckoning another sip.' - Randy Ullom, Winemaster

Even better is the 2008 Vintnerrsquo;s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. It is made from 100% estate fruit with 70% coming from Sonoma and 30% from Napa. A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, this serious Cabernet exhibits a deep ruby/purple-tinged hue as well as notes of cedar, charcoal, black cherries, licorice and herbs. Medium-bodied and rich with silky tannins and surprisingly abundant richness and extract, it should drink nicely for 5ndash;6 years, perhaps longer.
