Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay Special Select Vintners Reserve 2012
Good Chardonnay for the money. It was better at $10 - $11 but things have changed. A lot of wood, but a good standby Chard when in doubt.
best value for the price in U.S. Chard; Color-gold; nose-lemon & Apple; mouth-pear nectar; finish - medium linger; buy it drink it and try aging it! I have.
My standby Chardonnay. No one will ever knock this wine unless they're a wine snob and see the label. Pick up a few cases at 10 bucks a pop and you'll be set.
To Heavy on wood...can't stand drinking a bottle.
Very smooth nice white wine
This had a good medium oaky taste, a nice lingering finish, medium body with a nice slight lingering finish to it. the price is great and has the standard expected quality from kendall jackson.
Great white wine. Good for people who love oaky smell and sweet-taste. My friend could not believe it costs only $15/bottle.

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.
Here’s a rich, flashy Chardonnay. It has a fat, butter-and-cream mouthfeel, with waves of pineapple tart, lemon meringue, buttered toast and honey flavors that finish soft and lush
Deliciously crisp with lots of fruit and subtle spice notes. Layers of apricot, peach and orange blossom mingle with bursts of aromatic jasmine and a delightful finish.
Beautifully integrated tropical flavors such as pineapple, mango and papaya with citrus notes that explode in your mouth. These flavors delicately intertwine with aromas of vanilla and honey to create depth and balance throughout. A hint of toasted oak rounds out the long, lingering finish. - Randy Ullom, WinemasterGrowing Regions:42% Santa Barbara County39% Monterey County13% Mendocino County6% Sonoma CountyAlcohol: 13.5%T.A.: 0.67/100mlpH: 3.41 ** SOLD OUT **
