Kendall Jackson Sauvignon Blanc Vintner's Reserve California 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"Luscious honeysuckle, ripe pear and fresh lemon grass intertwine in this medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc. Hints of fresh lime complements the subtle mineral quality while added layers of fig and honeysuckle round out this crisp, aromatic wine." -Winery

  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

Lime and lemon emerge on the nose along with a touch of lemon verbena. Medium bodied, a bit soft and round for Sauvignon Blanc, this delivers clean slightly guava toned citrus flavors without any of the classic herbaceous character of Sauvignon Blanc. it’s easy to drink if just a bit heavy on the modest finish. 82pts

Subtle on the nose with vague herbal notes married to hints of mineral water and slightly candied lime and peach aromas. tart on entry and quite simple with a lemonade like flavor profile. There’s some weight on the palate but his is a neutral example of Sauvignon Blanc. Pleasant but no more and with very modest varietal character and almost no finish 80pts

'Lime, melon and Anjou pears intermingle with sweet and tropical fruits such as fig and kiwi to create this delightfully refreshing wine. Hints of grapefruit highlight the mineral qualities of this wine's surprisingly long finish.' - Randy Ullom, Winemaster
