  Jess Stonestreet Jackson, founder of Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates, was a legend in the wine industry. Thanks to his dedication and skill, he popularized Chardonnay in the United States, with the best-selling Chardonnay in America for over 20 years. In 1983, just one year after he founded Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates, his Chardonnay won the first double Platinum Award ever given by the American Wine Competition. Jackson passed away on April 21, 2011, at the age of 81, leaving behind the highest-selling brand of “super-premium” wine in the United States. In 1974, Jess Jackson and his wife, Jane Kendall, purchased and converted a pear and walnut orchard in Lakeport, California into a vineyard. In 1982, a downturn in the grape market discouraged Jackson from selling grapes, so he took the opportunity to create his own winery, Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates. This was a wise decision, since today, with 14,000 acres across California’s Sonoma County and numerous distinctions, Kendall-Jackson is one of the most successful wineries in America. Read less

An easy-drinking Sauvignon Blanc that has some slight residual sweetness, in the K-J style. Citrus and grassy aromas and flavors, clean and zesty, with added interest from small amounts of Segrave;millon and Viognier. A nice ldquo;beginnerrsquo;srdquo; wine.

A blend of of 87% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Segrave;millon and 3% Viognier, it emerges from cooler vineyards in Lake and Mendocino counties, with a small dollop from the Central Coast. Elegant and refreshing, with intriguing melon and tropical fruit characteristics, it is a pleasant, dry, medium-bodied Sauvignon to drink over the next year.
