Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 delivers blackberry, black cherry, chocolate and cassis. An upfront vanilla sweetness is noticed in the aroma which pulls all these attributes together. The palate has juicy cherry, pomegranate, and roasted coffee tones. The wine finishes with a fullness provided by ripe, rich, round tannins and a lasting finish full of flavor.

Varietal Blend: 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 5.5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec, .5% Petit Verdot

NOTE: Kendall-Jackson has changed the name of this wine during the release of the 2007 vintage, from "Meritage" to "Summation". As a result of name change, some customers may receive the new label before others. While the label may vary, the wine is identical.

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.
