Winemaker's Notes:

Succulent melon, ripe pear and fresh lemon grass mingle together in this medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc. Fresh lime complements the subtle mineral quality while added layers of fig and honeysuckle round out this crisp, aromatic wine.

  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

The nose showed ripe peach up front with notes of kiwi and lime. With time in the glass, aromas of green grass and spicy minerals joined the ripe fruits to present a very balanced bouquet. On the palate, it was crisp yet medium-bodied with melon, rich white fruits and a hint of bitter citrus. The finish tapered off with lasting pear and mouthwatering citrus notes.

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Clean, controlled and confidently focused on lightly grassy, green-melon fruit from front to back, this well-made, medium-full-bodied Sauvignon steers down the center of the varietal road without getting too pungent, too heavy or too stiff. It is, in short, a balanced and eminently likeable wine that is approachable now, but one whose stamina should hold it in good stead for several years.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

The 1997 Sauvignon Blanc Vintnerrsquo;s Reserve is a crisp, soft, light-bodied, fruity wine with a melony character. Drink it over the next 12 months.

Clean flavors of litchi balance a fresh, mineral acidity, placing this wine with sole Veronique.

This is good Sauvignon Blanc whose touch of oak adds cream and vanilla. The underlying wine shows Lake County balance, with citrus, lemongrass, peach and green apple flavors accented by crisp acidity, and finished with honey.

A really good job from K-J. For 11 bucks you get a bone-dry, crisp white wine, filled with savory citrus, fig, vanilla and white pepper flavors. This versatile wine will go with just about anything.

Ripe, rich, spicy flavors of peach and nectarine have great focus and intensity, with juicy citrus notes and a long, lingering finish. Drink now.

With 7% Segrave;millon, shows pretty melon, fig and grapefruit notes. Very extracted and rather on the sweet side, but crisp and stylish. Widely available and affordable.
