External Reviews for Kendall Jackson Vr Summation Red
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.
This medium-bodied Merlot exhibits aromas and flavors of plum, black cherry and blueberry, complemented by vanilla and toasty oak complexities.
At this price VR is treading into high-priced waters, but quality is keeping up. The wine is rich and lush, with a fine balance of dusty tannins, crisp acids and direct blackberry, coffee and herb flavors.
An authentic tasting, light to medium-bodied, soft Merlot offering aromas and flavors of cherries, herbs, earth, and berry fruit. It is meant to be drunk over the next 2-3 years.
This medium-bodied Merlot exhibits aromas and flavors of plum, black cherry and blueberry, complemented by vanilla and toasty oak that add complexity. Great food pairings for this wine include grilled tuna or steaks, rosemary-seasoned roasted lamb, red-sauced pastas or strong cheeses.
This medium-bodied Merlot exhibits aromas and flavors of plum, black cherry and blueberry complemented by vanilla and toasty oak complexities.
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.

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!
