Winemaker Notes

The 2000 growing season started off with a mild but wet winter. Record heat waves in May and June reduced berry size and added potency to the flavors. The remainder of the summer brought cooler weather with heat spikes near harvest. The sudden heat finally ripened the fruit while creating a new challene: berries that were just starting to shrivel at their peak of ripeness, concentrating the flavors even more. The end result was a vintage with long hang times, bringing both power and finesse to the carefully picked fruit. WINEMAKING: Grapes from old vines deserve a gentle crush, followed by a cold soak, warm fermentation and minimal maceration on the skins lasting 12 days in all. This extra care allowed this Zinfandel to develop deep color, rich aromatics and soft tannins. The freshly pressed wine was racked into small French and American oak barrels, where it aged for 10 months. This wine includes small amounts of Petite Sirah, Grenache and Carignane, typical complements to Zinfandel, which adds a dash of complexity and interest to a true old vine Zinfandel. This wine shows extraordinary white and black pepper, spice and plenty of blackberry and raspberry jam with a long, voluptuous finish.

Kendall-Jackson, , California
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.

Napa Valley

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
