Kendall-Jackson Vintners Reserve Syrah 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fresh and nicely focused on the nose with clean, cedary oak supporting red currant and raspberry fruit topped with some floral violet and vegetal nuances. Low acid and soft on entry, this is rich with black cherry and blackberry fruit over a base of leather, toast and vanilla with a nice edgy feel to the modest tannins and a hint of tar on the back end. The finish is quite attractive with very nice balance between the rather rich fruit and the firm tannins. Perhaps a bit simple, this is nonetheless well-balanced and tasty. 86pts

  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
