I wish I could remember the name of the 90 rated value rose' wine I had last year but it opened my eyes to this type of wine and it's the standard by which I now judge rose'. Mulderbosch is popluar. It has no off notes with strawberry flavors that are light and pleasant...but not exceptional depth or complexity for a rose'. Given that rose' is made from different types of grapes maybe those made from 100% cabernet isn't my favorite but it's good. I'd give this rose' a score of 86 with 3 quality stars.
This is a wine that surprised me. I'm not typically a great fan of any of the varietals blended in this wine but tasting it made me a believer. Rather than the typical cough syrup taste I anticipated the wine too a turn toward sweet fruit instead. Just a very tasty wine that should appeal to a wide range of wine lovers. Overall this wine is extremely user friendly but not a 90 wine in terms of complexity or length of finish. My score - a very strong 89...enjoy!
This wine is popular because it's truly a smooth and fruity style that suits what many U.S. consumers want out of a white wine...we want it tasty, fruit forward, and uncomplicated by oak. For years, Kendall-Jackson knows how to hit that 'sweet' spot and they've done so here. I'd give the wine a rock solid 87 as there's nothing off putting but it's straight forward 'fast food' Chard...and there's nothing wrong with that! Buy and enjoy.
