[LBK, TB] Exactly what you expect. Lacks complexity, but offers the standard qualities. Oak, pear, tropical fruit, slight acidity on the finish. Fills its niche when you are looking for a glass of wine on a subpar restaurant wine list.

A good oaky chardonnay. Crisp and clean, a great option for summer!

I've tried many chardonnays in this price range and nothing ever comes close to Kendall-Jackson. It's always good. It's so full-flavored, it's especially nice for sipping.

KJ's most popular Chardonnay. Ripe fruit flavors and hint of oak.

A clean, correct California Chardonnay, reliable as ever. Pear, peach and citrus flavors go down easily, buffered by graham crackery spice.

The Vintnerrsquo;s Reserve series includes the 2003 Vintnerrsquo;s Reserve Chardonnay, perhaps the finest example of this cuvee yet produced. There are 1.9 million cases, and it is the same wine no matter when it is bottled. Approximately 80% comes from the estate vineyards, and, amazingly, the entire cuveacute;e is aged for 6ndash;9 months in both French and American oak. Lees stirring is done for about one month. Undeniably the best Chardonnay for the price in the marketplace, it offers notes of crushed minerals intermixed with lemon custard, orange skins, and tropical fruits. This crisp, medium-bodied, elegant, dry Chardonnay is an astonishing achievement considering the quantity produced as well as its price.
