Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Tropical flavors such as mango and pineapple dance with aromas of peach, apple and pear. Richly layered and balanced throughout. Lightly buttered toast headlines the indulgent, lingering finish.

Sara M reviewed this wine as follows:

A fruit-forward wine that shows it's Californian roots well with notes of apple, pineapple and pear. There is a hint of toast and hazelnut on the palate that strikes a harmonious balance with the fruit. This would be a wonderful wine to bring to a Spring celebration, and would pair well with a pear & walnut salad with garlic toast.

Natalie's Review

Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay 2011, California, United States: Butterscotch and vanilla smoke from toasty oak on the nose is followed by green apple and white peach notes. Full-bodied and generous with a nice finish. Full-bodied, rich and creamy, this wine has a lovely mouth-filling texture and weight. Let's have it with roast chicken tonight!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
