Editorial Reviews for Kendall-Jackson Riesling California Vintner's Reserve
A lot of grapefruit, grapefruit pith, lime and slightly caramel notes great the nose. This has bags of acid on the palate, aggressively so, and while they balance the sugar well, they are raw and uncovered at the same time. There’s not much flavor here, just the sensation of acid and sweetness on the palate with a weird finish that combines bitter grapefruit oil with a light dried fruit sweetness and a long, harsh acidic finale. A tough wine to like. 72pts

Decent light dinner wine.
A decent Riesling for the price that's widely available.
Sweet but still strong
This is not bad. I'm almost neutral, but I do enjoy it on occasion for a few bucks. Pairs well with fish.

Citrus notes and floral aromas combine with lush peach, pear, apricot and tangerine flavors on the palate. The off-dry finish balances the full fruit and crisp acidity.
Soft and fragrant, with bright peach and apple flavors, plus a piney edge that adds character. Finishes with a lively mouthful of fruit. Drink now.
The 2001 Riesling Vintner's Reserve displays an enticing, moderately intense bouquet of Red Delicious apples and pineapples. This friendly, light, dry, crisp Riesling is made in a true German kabinett style. Approximately 90% of the fruit came from the cool climate Monterey viticultural region. It requires consumption over the next year.
Peachy clean, with a pleasing fruity quality that is mild and not overpowering. Bright enough to avoid any cloying sensation, with a touch of sweetness at the end. Great for aperitifs and seafood.
Readers looking for a good Spätlese-styled Riesling should check out the 1999 Johannisberg Riesling Vintner's Reserve from Monterey. It reveals excellent orange, citrus, and apple blossom characteristics, light to medium body, and a good, crisp finish with just a touch of residual sugar.
