Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc

"Our first Vintner's Reserve Meritage release makes this all the more special. Flavors abound starting with espresso, dark chocolate, pomegranate and black cherry. The wine has a multi-layered, full mouthfeel with a medium finish. This wine screams for tri-tip!"
- 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.
