Food Pairings for Kendall Jackson Vintner Cabernet
I can see why people would like this as their "everyday white". Not to strong on any end but plenty to offer. Aroma somewhat muted. Hints of pine, oak, and with a slight citrus tinge. Taste comes on somewhat slow but builds. Well-balanced acidity with a touch of oak. Lacks the buttery richness of most upper end Chardonnays but again a great every day wine.
typical KJ Chard. Perfectly balanced. Everything falls into place like clockwork. Why spend big bucks on super high end chardonnay when the KJ can stand up to most of them and has a very affordable price.
This wine was sweet and fruity on the nose. It had a nice beginning with crisp apple and buttery taste with a nice acid balance. At the end it gets a too strong acidity feel and taste.
Solid overall. Light butter and oak
Unoffensive but nothing spectacular. A big difference from the 2008 as it was thinner with a bit of a balance issue. OK nose but a tad thin in the middle with sweet lemon in the front and wood at the end and missing any buttery richness that was the hallmark of KJ especially in the early years.
I really like this - not oaky; lush fruit and a buttery texture.
External Reviews for Kendall Jackson Vintner Cabernet
Tasted just after bottling, the wine was a little bottle-shocked, but should be fine by Summer 2010. Rich and creamy, with complex tropical fruit, buttered toast, lemondrop candy and honeysuckle flavors. An amazing 111,000 cases were produced.
There are several million cases of the 2009 Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay (100% estate grown Chardonnay that is, remarkably, 100% barrel fermented), which comes primarily from Jess Jackson's coastal properties in Monterey and Santa Barbara. Winemaker Randy Ullom told me he manages to stir the lees on all the barrels once a month, which is astonishing. Abundant aromas of white peach, honeysuckle, green apple skins and a hint of tropical fruits jump from the glass of this medium-bodied, crisp, dry, fruity, well-made Chardonnay. It is a sensational bargain.
Made in the familiar style that is K-J Vintner's Reserve, this Chardonnay shows pineapple, lemondrop, mineral and spice flavors balanced with crisp coastal acidity.
The delicious 2002 Vintnerrsquo;s Reserve Chardonnay (100% Chardonnay) exhibits copious quantities of tropical fruits, subtle wood, medium body, underlying crisp acidity, and admirable purity. It is one of the two finest Chardonnay values in the marketplace (the other being Cartlidge and Brownersquo;s Chardonnay).
Oaky, fat and slightly sweet, with creamy flavors of pineapples, buttered popcorn and vanilla. A good approximation of a Burgundian-style California Chardonnay at a fair price.
A finish of sugary sweetness marks this Chard. It was grown in prime coastal regions, which accounts for the crisp acidity and long hangtime flavors of pineapples, green apples, Meyer lemons, kiwi fruit and spicy oak.
Made in the slightly sweet style that made this bottling famous, this Chardonnayrsquo;s pineapple, orange and peach flavors are balanced by crisp, coastal acidity. Itrsquo;s a fine sipper at an affordable price.
Opens with deep black cherry, blackberry and cassis flavors. Intense, round and well-structured tannins provide a strong backbone throughout the middle. Cedar and vanilla notes linger on the finish, beckoning another sip.
Delectable tropical fruit intertwines with grapefruit, lemon and candied lime peel. Elegantly layered, this wine exhibits a creamy, lush texture with vanilla accents and a hint of cinnamon spice to round out the long, lingering finish.
1,419 cases produced.
