Natalie's Score: 88/100

Kendall-Jackson Reserve is a consistent crowd-pleasing California Cabernet Sauvignon. Smoky with black cherry, tobacco leaf and mocha notes on the palate from oak aging . This popular Cabernet Sauvignon-based Bordeaux blend hails from the cool-climate, hillside vineyards of Sonoma County. Good structure, balance with well integrated oak. Tannins starting to mellow. Rich with dark fruit, underbrush, dark chocolate, cedar spice and smoky flavours on the palate. Enjoy with ribs and burgers from the grill.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: veal chops, rosemary lamb, barbecued ribs in sauce, chicken cacciatore.

Reviews and Ratings

Love this full-bodied, smoky Californian mostly Cab blend from Kendall-Jackson. Lots of layers of dark fruit, black cherries, blackberries, cassis and delicately spiced on the palate. The Vintner's Reserve series began in 1982. Enjoy now or cellar for three years. Aged 12 months in 65% French and 35% American oak. Enjoy now and for then next 10 years. - Community Wine Reviews
