  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

The 2011 Pinot Noir Vintners Reserve is another screaming value. Sweet red berries flowers spices and mint all jump from the glass. Hints of tobacco add complexity on the close. A forward juicy Pinot the 2011 is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years. Pinot is rarely inexpensive. This is just about as good as it gets for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

This garnet gem delivers bright cherry, strawberry and raspberry fruit with elegant earthy notes infused with cola and mild spice accents. Oak aging adds a hint of vanilla and a soft, smoky finish. - Randy Ullom, WinemasterGrowing Regions:86% Monterey County14% Santa Barbara CountyAlcohol: 13.5%T.A.: 0.56g/100mlpH: 3.69
