Kendall Jackson Chardonnay Vintner's Reserve California 2013
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 and butter rounds out the long, lingering finish.
Editorial Reviews for Kendall Jackson Chardonnay Vintner's Reserve California
A bit low key on the nose with soft apple pie and grilled pineapple fruit under a topping of burnt marshmallow and vanilla cookies. Medium to full in the mouth with some hints of lemony acidity helping to balance out the obvious sweetness here. This is creamy and indistinct in the mouth with a nice balance of grilled pineapple and vanilla flavors on the mid-palate. Gains sweet graham cracker notes on the finish, which shows a bit of heat under the lemon candy sweetness. 82pts
Sweet and quite spicy on the nose with heavy pineapple and papaya aromas topped with a bit of caramel and a touch of dried ginger. A bit round and heavy on entry with nice acidity, but dried fruit flavors make this seem a bit dull. The flavors tend towards the dried mango and pineapple end of the spectrum with a juicy pop of lemon on the midpalate and oak influences which are fairly restrained, adding a spicy underlay and framing notes of vanilla through the back end. The finish is simple with lemon juice and egg cream flavors. Serviceable if a bit anonymous. 84pts Acidity: Medium Perceived Sweetness: Low Oak: Medium Low Spicy Flavors: Medium Savory Flavors: Low Fruity Flavors: Medium Intensity of Flavor: Medium Weight in Mouth: Medium High
Sweet and fruity on the nose with notes of pear and pineapple accented by toasty wood spice and some green sap wood notes. Rather rich in the mouth with vivid acids that more than balance out the sweetness. This is almost Loire Valley Chenin-like with its combination of sweetness and blazing acidity. The fruit has a nice creamy edge with lots of caramel corn framing notes to the core of pineapple and green apple fruit. Finishes with spice, a touch of heat and some zesty, acid-driven fruit flavors. A lot of wine, too much actually, with the acidity becoming intrusive as you get used to the sweetness here. I’d rather not. 83pts
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.

This is a tasty and accessibly priced Chardonnay. It packs in lots of fruit flavor, vibrant acidity, rich texture and layers of oaky spice while showing a rare sense of seamlessness. Very Californian and compelling.

The 2013 Chardonnay Vintner’s Reserve, which is 90% barrel-fermented with 100% malolactic fermentation, represents a whopping 3 million cases. The consistency and quality of this wine from year to year is remarkable. Forty percent is sourced from their vineyards in Monterey, 35% from Santa Barbara and the rest from Mendocino and Sonoma. It all comes from estate sources, and is creamier and more fruit-driven, showing some vanilla and toast, but still emphasizing notes of peach, honeysuckle and pineapple in a fruity, exuberant, fresh, surprisingly complex and intriguing style.
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.
kendall continues their streak of top-notch wines. Loads of tropical fruit, surprisingly deep texture, medium body, and wonderful purity results in crisp, elegant, dry Chardonnay." Robert M. Parker Jr., Wine Advocate
