    Winemaker's Notes:

    Delectable tropical fruit intertwines with grapefruit, lemon and candied lime peel. Elegantly layered, this wine exhibits a creamy, lush texture with vanilla accents and a hint of cinnamon spice to round out the long, lingering finish. The grapes are from 51% Santa Barbara County and 49% Monterey County.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Readers looking for more caramelized tropical fruit and honeysuckle characteristics as well as more opulence and flesh should check out the 2009 Grand Reserve Chardonnay (a blend of equal parts Santa Barbara and Monterey fruit). This 100% Chardonnay was aged 9 months in primarily French oak, and was put through 100% barrel and malolactic fermentation with lots of lees stirring. Kendall-Jackson's Chardonnay program has always been a reference point for how to get the most out of this grape and this cuvee highlights the buttery melon, tropical fruit and peach-like characteristics of Chardonnay. It also possesses medium to full body, well-integrated wood and a long, heady, rich finish.

    I'm not a chardonnay fan (except for those from France), but this one is quite nice for the price.

    Always a favorite of mine and this vintage met my expectations. KJ's Grand Reserve wines are a value packed wine across the board.
