Winemaker Notes

Kendall-Jackson's Grand Reserve Merlot is crafted with grapes hand-selected from specific areas of their Jackson Estates Grown vineyards in Sonoma County. An intense concentration of black fruit and dark chocolate is enhanced by 18 months of oak barrel aging. There is seductive fruit tone on the nose and a long, velvety finish.

Blend: 95% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

COMMENTARY: One of the most critical aspects of Merlot is the wine's ability to remain true its grape variety. The 2014 Kendall-Jackson Grand Reserve Merlot—made from 95% Merlot—is quite fine and represents a beautiful expression of this grape variety. TASTING NOTES: This wine is bright, fresh, and decidedly serious. Its ripe fruit, pencil lead, and overall brightness of flavors make it an excellent wine match with an oven-baked pork tenderloin.

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.

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.
