External Reviews for Kendall Jackson Vr Summation Red
Here's a supple, polished Merlot that shows lots of North Coast class. It's fully dry, with rich, smooth tannins and complex flavors of black currants, cedar and herbs. Good buy for under $20.
The cherry, mocha, and chocolate-scented 2006 Vintner's Reserve Merlot (nearly 100% estate-grown Merlot fruit) is also quite good. Both of these reds posses 2-3 years of longevity.
Another clear upgrade in quality is the 2007 Vintner's Reserve Merlot. This is even stronger than the 2006, which was an upgrade over earlier efforts. Elegant mocha and berry fruit intermixed with some herbs, coffee, and spice make for a delicious, round wine that is actually a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, all from Sonoma. Drink it over the next 2-4 years.
A sound, clean, dry Merlot from various parts of Sonoma County. Elegant and classy, with firm tannins framing rich flavors of red and black cherries, red currants, tobacco, cola and sweet, smoky sandalwood. Quite impressive at this price.
Rich and flavorful with soft cherry and berry fruit. Ideal with beef, lamb or pasta with light tomato sauces.
Lean, with a strong toasted oak shade to the tart cherry, currant and herb flavors. finishes lean, but the tannins are balanced, not drying. Drink now through 2003.
"The premiere vintage of Summation, our red wine blend, is beautifully layered and offers a luxurious texture. Enticing aromas and flavors of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, black cherry and pomegranate." -Randy Ullom, Winemaster

Wonderful plum, spice, currant and wild berry flavors. The soft tannins of this Bordeaux varietal carry these aromas and flavors to a long lingering finish — one that beckons for another sip, or better...a glass!
