Kendall-Jackson Syrah California Vintner's Reserve 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense black currant and bold, jammy blackberry and boysenberry flavors are accented by black cherry, earth and perfume notes. A full mouthfeel is rounded off with supple suede leather and spice for an elegant yet big, lush finish.

  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

Deep but bright fruit on the nose, smooth oak and balanced tannins, lingers nicely in the back of the throat

Brought this wine to Hollywood Bowl on 27 July 2011 for the Ingram/Knight concert. It went well with the chicken we also brought. It had a fruity taste that went well with the chicken.

Three and a half glasses



Tasting Notes:

Ripe boysenberry and raspberry flavors entice the senses while a long flirtation of spicy plum and peppercorn linger on the finish. Bold tannins hold their weight throughout every sip of this powerful and intense wine.

Intense black currant and bold, jammy blackberry and boysenberry flavors are accented by black cherry, earth and perfume notes. A full mouthfeel is rounded off with supple suede leather and spice for an elegant yet big, lush finish.
