Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve 2017

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Key Points: • Coming primarily from Monterey and Mendocino’s cool coastal vineyards, the Pinot Noir is bright, juicy and vibrant with delicate floral and pink citrus fruit nuances. • The Syrah in this wine contributes a beautiful pink/coral color and strawberry fruit notes. • Stainless steel fermentation retains the bright fruit character, freshness and purity of the wine and makes it perfect for sipping on its own or paired with bright spring and summertime meals. Tasting Notes: A gorgeous hue of pale pink, jumps out of the glass with crisp grapefruit, strawberry and white floral notes. Aromas of fresh cut watermelon, hibiscus, and apricot. - Randy Ullum, Winemaster Growing Regions: 32% Monterey County 29% Mendocino County 20% Santa Barbara County 19% Sonoma County Composition: 75% Pinot Noir 23% Syrah 2% Grenache T.A.: 0.64g/100mL pH: 3.47 Alcohol: 13.5%

  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
