Winemaker's Notes:

Elegant and refined, this wine represents a unique offering among Zinfandels. The opulent nose of blackberry, currant and raspberry leads to rich, jammy flavors that are enhanced by hints of black pepper, vanilla and spice. This remarkable, full-bodied wine shows a supple elegance through to the lingering finish. -Randy Ullom, Winemaster

About Kendall-Jackson:

Back in 1974, Jess Jackson saw in the fine vineyards of California's cool coastal regions fruit with a variety of outstanding flavors. What if there was a way to produce from this abundance, a single outstanding "cuvée" that offered both quality and value? The result, first released in 1983, was Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay, a rich, round and flavorful wine, made with hand-crafted methods. That same year, Grand Reserve was introduced, a line of ultra-premium wines that represented the full potential of California's finest vineyards and winemaking. Today, over 5,000 acres of vineyard in California's coastal regions are farmed by Kendall-Jackson. Four separate wineries house what is possibly the single largest barrel-fermentation project in the world. But perhaps most important, is that Kendall-Jackson remains a family-owned winery.
