Grapes for this Grand Reserve Cabernet are harvested from the Jackson Estate vineyards. Within the vineyards are lower yielding blocks that are designated specifically for the Grand Reserve wines. Robert Parker scored this 2008 89-90+ saying "Composed of 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Malbec aged 19 months in French oak (47% new), the 2008 Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon displays an inky/purple color as well as abundant aromas of creme de cassis, camphor, tobacco leaf, licorice and background smoky oak. This rich, full-bodied Cabernet admirably showcases the potential for rich, layered, ageworthy Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma. It will benefit from another 1-2 years of bottle age and should keep for at least 12 years."

Grapes for this Grand Reserve Cabernet are harvested from the Jackson Estate vineyards. Within the vineyards are lower yielding blocks that are designated specifically for the Grand Reserve wines. 92% Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with 8% of the other four bordeaux varietals (Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot) and aged for 17 months in French oak barrels. Robert Parker called it "Outstanding" scoring it 90-93 points. Wine Enthusiast Magazine gave it a 91 saying "Serious Cabernet, rich and complex and full bodied, made from Knights Valley and Alexander Valley fruit, with a few grapes from Atlas Peak and Mount Veeder. Dense and tannic now, but high toned, with waves of black currants, black cherries and oak. A good price for a Cabernet of this quality. Drink now–2012."
