Winemaker's Notes:

Score: N/A Tasting Notes: This Chardonnay bursts with tropical flavors such as mango, papaya and pineapple with citrus notes that explode in your mouth. These flavors delicately intertwine with aromas of green apple and pear to create depth and balance throughout. A hint of toasted oak rounds out the long lingering finish. Web Site: Click Here

  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

Lightly sweet but crisp, with lots of fruit and butter. Apple, pineapple, lemon, and butter flavors with a hint of mango on the finish. Creamy and smooth, very nicely balanced. Really impressed with this Chard.

We like this Chardonnay. Lots of ripe pear, vanilla, lush, round and smooth on the palate. Yes, it's the stereotypical overweight American, but it's good!

    I have talked to many talented winemakers who have worked at Kendall-Jackson, and they are all impressed by the meticulous attention to detail and overall commitment this cuvée receives. It is produced from 100% Chardonnay grown in coastal vineyards, is 100% barrel-fermented, and, as one of the winemakers pointed out, if the barrels were laid end to end, they would extend for 41 miles! The residual sugar is low, so the wine tastes essentially dry. The 2000 exhibits surprisingly good tropical fruit characteristics along with a subtle whiff of spice. Light to medium-bodied and refreshing, with admirable flavor intensity as well as texture.

    Comes across as oaky, with a blast of charcoal, vanilla and sweet wood framing sweet peach flavors.

    Toasted hazelnut aromas lead to a supple mouth feel with flavors of brown butter and honey.
