Quality Chardonnay for the price. Very clean look and a crisp taste. Light bodied and smooth mouth feel. Noted pineapple and tropical fruit tastes with slight dryness. Finish was pleasant but didn't last too long. All in all a descent Chardonnay.

This is a chardonnay made in a European style, I could be easily fooled into thinking it came from Burgundy or the Loire. Nose of mild dried flowers mixed with compost, almost a farm smell, balanced in the mouth with light and airy body and mild flavor similar to (dry) white grape juice with a hint of lemon and a citrus finish. Not much glyercin feel.

The wine has a light golden color. It's mellowed some from the same vintage I opened last year. Aromas of lemon, green apple and vanilla. The palate is dominated by citrus- lemon and grapefruit with a touch of sweetness. There's a moderate amount of acidity for balance. It's medium-dry with a nice richness to the mouthfeel. A bit of toasted oak is evident on the smooth medium finish.

Though this wine is made in a similar style every year, I think the 2007 is my favorite vintage yet for the Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay. In fact, I found it as tasty as the slightly more expensive Grand Reserve Chardonnay - which is also an incredible bargain. Full, round, harmonious Chardonnay with plenty of tropical fruit flavors and spice along with enough acidity to keep it clean and refreshing. Amazing buy, especially when you can find it on sale at a place like Safeway for under $10.

I love this Chardonnay! Similar to the 2006, the 2007 may be even richer. Very full in flavor yet with a pitch-perfect level of balancing acidity. Rich, complex aromas and flavors include peach, apricot, and tropical fruits along with an orange-citrus edge, some slight oak toastiness and a sweet straw/leesy element. Mouth-coating richness and long finish, with not a hint of cloying over-ripeness or sweetness. Very fairly priced for the quality level.

Decent Chardonnay, but not as flowing on the palate as some

'Tropical flavors such as mango and pineapple dance with aromas of peach, apple and pear. Richly layered and balanced throughout. Lightly buttered toast headlines the indulgent, lingering finish.' - Randy Ullom, Winemaster

There are nearly 260,000 cases of the 2007 Grand Reserve Chardonnay, which comes from Jess Jackson's estate holdings in Santa Barbara and Monterey. Some serious vineyards' fruit is included in this wine, which no doubt explains the big, tropical fruit-scented nose, fine acidity, and medium to full-bodied flavors. Despite the fact that this cuvée sees 100% barrel fermentation with full malolactic, there is little evidence of oak. The wine is aged eight months, on its lees, in one-third French oak. It is an amazing Chardonnay for the price.

A flavorful mix of pineapple, orange peel, toasty oak and vanilla flavors that finish with a twang of citrus. Drink now.

Elegant and tropical with hints of lemon oil essence, key lime and yellow grapefruit. Notes of ripe pineapple and mango can be found throughout this exquisitely balanced Chardonnay. Lushly layered and viscous with a firm acidity and enchanting creamy texture. The finish lingers on and on.

A blend of Santa Barbara, Monterey and Sonoma in true K-J style, and very good in a generic sort of way. What it lacks in terroir it makes up for in flamboyantly ripe fruit. Impresses for its lush, creamy texture, layers of smoky oak and long, spicy finish.

Monterey's cool-climate flavors of lemons and limes marry richer, more tropical Santa Barbara notes in this creamy smooth Chardonnay. Oak plays a prominent role, lending an edge of vanilla and buttered toast. This is a very good price for the quality.

Winemaker's Notes:

A complex bouquet, where aromas of green apples, peaches, honey and vanilla underlay flavours of baked apples, lemon, pineapple and mango. A hint of toasted oak rounds out a lingering finish.
