External Reviews for Kendall-Jackson Pinot Noir Monterey County Great Estates
Aromas of fresh raspberry, blackberry and cherry are tinged with hints of smoky tea.
From the very good '99 California Pinot vintage, here's an affordable and elegant choice, offering pleasant black cherry and red currant flavors that are round, firming up on the finish, where the tannins show their strength. Drink now through 2004.
From coastal counties between Mendocino and Santa Barbara, a nice, supple wine that has plenty of Pinot character. Don't expect depth or ageability, but this black raspberry-flavored wine has soft, silky tannins and a spicy finish.
From six coastal counties, a varietally true Pinot at an everyday price, which is a rare thing. Delicate aromas of beet, mushroom, hard spice, tea and black cherry precede a balanced, silky, dry wine, with good berry flavors and a sprinkling of dusty tannins.
Bing cherry, raspberry and blueberry fruit flavors are layered with vanilla and spice notes.
The nose is pinot, with an appealing smoky, black cherry aroma and bits of steeped tea. The mid-palate is rich and round, with more smoky black fruit and fine structure. Winemaker Randy Ullom adds a dash of syrah to the blend to bolster the mid-palate and add some complexity, and it seems to work just fine. Impressive for the price. - Anthony Gismondi ** SOLD OUT **
A gentle, harmonious pinot noir with strawberry and orange flavors, this is light bodied and pleasingly simple. for roast salmon.
