|Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This crowd-pleasing Cabernet Sauvignon-based Bordeaux blend hails from the cool-climate, hillside vineyards of Sonoma County. Despite an ongoing drought, 2014 turned out to be a great vintage. Fruit forward with layers of dark fruit on the nose and aromas and flavours of ripe black cherries, blackberries and cassis on the palate. Subtle touch of spice. Good structure and balance, well integrated oak. Firm tannins starting to mellow. Closes in a long, lingering cedary finish. Perfectly released in time for summer BBQ, as it make a great companion to grilled meats. Tasted June 2017. Tania Thomas – www.runawaygrape.com
|Wineboy rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
a classic Cali CS. medium weight. More fruit dominated - less oak. Smoothing nicely but might benefit from 2 more years.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
A simple, easy drinking BBQ/patio pleaser. Lovely ripe plum, jammy blackberry, leather, vanilla, and allspice notes linger on the palate. Enjoy this dark, velvety fruit forward, medium+ bodied entry level California Cabernet with jalapeno cheddar beef BBQ burgers. Tasted May 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketasting.ca

Tasted July 14th 2017, with neighbours. Colour dark red, medium legs. Aromas, blackberry, cranberry, red current, camp fire smoke and coffee grounds. Taste, black fruit, dry, medium mouth feel, medium tannin and acidity, hint of charcoal on the finish. An ok wine paired with grilled meat and or hard cheese.
|Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve (2014) Cabernet Sauvignon is great value and a wine to pair with roast beef. Kendall-Jackson's Vintner's Reserve portfolio started in 1982 with the Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay, and now has this Sonoma Cabernet. The wine is consistent in flavour and you can count on it to be a consistently good Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma County. - Community Wine Reviews|
