Editorial Reviews for Kendall Jackson Vr Summation Red
This smells sweet and fruit with an immediate hit of wild cherry candy and vanilla on the nose that reminds me of cherry coke or something similar. Aromatically monolithic with some oak nuances and a hint of bay leaf emerging with time. Showing decent balance in the mouth, this delivers a nice hit of cherry pie filling with flourishes of cinnamon and bitter chocolate shavings before becoming dominated by dry woody tannins on the backend.The tannins take full control on the short, dry finish. 83pts
Vibrant ruby red color, cedar and red berry aromas, pomegranate and cherry flavors, medium mouthfeel and finish.
My first dip into the Merlot world. a very nice flavorful body with a not overpowering kick of tannic in the end. I'm most definately a fan.

The 2008 Vintnerrsquo;s Reserve Merlot (98% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc aged 14 months in two-thirds French and one-third American oak) exhibits a dark plum color along with notes of cherry cola, raspberry, garrigue, loamy soil and spice box. This medium-bodied, juicy Merlot is somewhat monolithic, but it displays an appropriate varietal character. Drink it over the next 2ndash;3 years.
This merlot overdelivers: The overall impression is cool and austere, a wine with some class, the fruit maintaining firmness and tension the way a plump cherry is held within its ripe skin. Decant it to let the juicy black cherry flavors emerge from behind the caramel sweetness of oak.
A fine, complex Merlot, appealing for its array of cherry, smoked meat, balsam, soy and pepper flavors. Shows lots of class and finesse for the price.
