“Flavors and aromas of chocolate, raspberry and cherry delight the palate in this rich, full-bodied Merlot. Focused tannins, combined with subtle French oak nuances of light toast and vanilla, contribute to this wine’s long and very elegant finish.”

Review

Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate, Aug. 2002 • Kendall-Jackson is the #1 Wine Brand in Restaurants – 14th Annual Wine & Spirits Restaurant Poll 2003

 Wine Advocate 91 points (Dec 2013)
The outstanding 2011 Merlot Grand Reserve, a blend of 91.8% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, comes primarily from Sonoma Countys Trace Ridge, Legacy and Alexander Mountain Estate vineyards. Copious aromas of berries, mocha and chocolate as well as a hint of oak emerge from this full-bodied, opulent Merlot. It should drink well for a decade.”,,,
