Kendall-Jackson Riesling Vintners Reserve 2011
Riesling is a lovely varietal to enjoy when you are looking for something just a little different. Rich and ripe - yet still crisp and mouthwatering. The lush fruit character and just a hint of residual sugar make this an ideal wine to pair with slightly spicy cuisine. Deliciously crisp with vibrant fruit aromas and subtle spice notes. Layers of apricot, peach and orange blossom intermingle with bursts of aromatic jasmine delivering a delightful finish.
Editorial Reviews for Kendall-Jackson Riesling Vintners Reserve
Fruity apple and lemon aromas greet the nose along with hints of sweet flowers and honeycomb. This is fairly low acid, particularly for a Riesling, so think soft and broad in the mouth with slightly creamy caramel-tinged apple fruit and some candied cherry notes on the mid-palate followed by ripe, sweet pear fruit. The finish is modest and a touch coarse with a hint of bitterness. Simple, fruity and somewhat atypical for Riesling. 82pts

Honeysuckle, apricot and peach flavors delicately mingle with hits of Anjou pear. Deliciously crisp and nearly-dry with overflowing orange blossom and spice flavors accented by aromatic jasmine and a delightful finish.
