Kendall-Jackson Kendall Jackson Vintner's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
It's an ok wine but a bit too acidic for my palate
External Reviews for Kendall-Jackson Kendall Jackson Vintner's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintner’s Reserve (260,410 cases) is surprisingly European in style for a K-J wine. Nearly all Cabernet Sauvignon with just tiny dollops of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec, it comes from Sonoma (88%) and Mendocino with a little bit from the Central Coast and Napa. Aged eight months in French and American oak, it offers up hints of licorice, bouquet garni, roasted herbs, and red and black currants, and medium-bodied, pretty, soft fruit. This wine could easily pass for a very good cru bourgeois from Bordeaux. Enjoy it over the next 2–3 years.
Ripe and rustic, this is chewy and agreeable in a pleasant, straightforward style, with a tannic edge to the dried berry fruit. Drink now through 2018.
Aromas of lush black cherry, blackberry and cassis draw you in. Round and rich tannins pr ovide a robust backbone and supple mid-palate. Notes of cedar,vanilla and a hint of mocha linger on the finish.
