  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 purple color with a nose of dark red berry, black cherry and toffee. The palate is tart black cherry and cedar with hints of cocoa and licorice on the finish.

Very enjoyable. A muted bright fruity cab that's just beginning to get hints of that delicate rusty aged flavor. A great value.

Cabernet the old fashioned way. Delicate berry and vanilla scent gives way to a slightly cedar/alcohol scent. Nice mouth feel is slightly hot and the tannins could stand a little more refinement. Lingers for a while. Good but not great value for $23-$25 Cdn.(try the J Lohr 2005 Cab Sav instead)

On the nose i get a hint of apple, and dark fruit. The nose is just very poor though, not impressed. On the palate I get black liquorice, some dark chocolate, dark fruit, I also get some cherry. I think this is a very unbalanced wine. The acid/heat is way over powering. The tannins need alot of refinement. The price point of 20 bones is far to high for this wine and for 20 bones you can do better. Im going to give this wine 70 points and a major pass.

Wine Tasting NotesOpens 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.

Wine Tasting NotesWell-defined currants, blackberry, blueberry and cassis make for abundant fruit on the attack. Sturdy, complex tannins balance the acidity throughout. Notes of smoke, mocha, cedar and lots of rich oak round off the long, earthy, heady finish.

In der Nase entfalten sich fruchtige Aromen nach Brombeeren und schwarzen Kirschen. Im Gaumen ist er würzig mit subtilen Vanilletönen und Zedern, perfekt strukturiert mit genügend Tannine. Ein ausgewogener und eleganter Cabernet Sauvignon.
