Kendall-Jackson Syrah California Vintner's Reserve 2007
This California Meritage is made from all five of the classic Bordeaux varietals - cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot. It is garnet-black in colour with deep intensity. The nose has aromas of cherry, green bramble, coffee and dark chocolate. The balance is satisfactory. Plum and chocolate on the palate with a medium, slightly bitter finish.
