This wasn't quite what I was expecting in a Merlot. Perhaps I am too accustomed to the Washington Merlot. The nose was really tight when the bottle was first opened. Red berry, a bit of earth and spice on the nose with a palate of sweet cherry, some tobacco, spice and a dry finish. After about an hour I was expecting the wine to open up, but it actually seemed to close down and show more tartness on the palate and the finish is really dry with a predominant cherry pit characteristic.

External Reviews for Kendall-Jackson Merlot Bennett Valley Highland Estates Taylor Peak
Black plum, boysenberry, and cherry flavors dance amongst the violet, chocolate and cedar notes. This wine is smooth and the tannins are refined and round. In true Merlot character, this wine caresses the mouth and lingers beyond each sip.
The 2002 Grand Reserve Merlot, produced from Mendocino and Sonoma fruit, is better than the Vintner's Reserve effort, displaying more chocolate, mocha, and berry fruit, medium body, and a straightforward finish that possesses good power and depth.
A first-rate Merlot at a good price for the quality. Dry and complex, with a soft, velvety texture, this supple wine features blackberry, red cherry, cocoa and sweet dried herb flavors, finished with toasty oak.
A wine that should rekindle consumer interest in Merlot is the 2006 Grand Reserve Merlot. Plenty of seductive, chocolaty, black cherry, and berry fruit emerge from this deep ruby/purple-hued, medium to full-bodied, 100% Merlot. With good depth, a silky texture, and a heady finish, it should drink well for a decade or more.
This is a tremendously rich Merlot, made from top Sonoma vineyards. Dry and tannic, it has potent flavors of cherries, blackberries, currants and cedar. Could develop in the bottle through 2012 with careful cellaring.
Wonderful plum, spice, currant and wild berry flavors. The soft tannins of this Bordeaux varietal carry these aromas and flavors to a long lingering finish — one that beckons for another sip, or better...a glass!
