About the Wine:

Winemaking Philosophy
Grand Reserve is a winemaker’s blend of our mountain, ridge, hillside and benchland grapes grown along California’s cool coastal appellations. We hand select grapes from our best estate vineyards and then monitor, taste and hand-hold each individual lot throughout the winemaking process. Each lot is kept separate, barrel-aged and crafted—boutique winery style. Our winemakers have an unmatched palette of flavors, toast levels and terroir nuances from which they masterfully blend these exemplary rich, deep and complex wines.

Experience the Difference
• Crafted from the top 5% of all the Kendall-Jackson lots
• 70% of the wine is from the same vineyard blocks year-to-year, ensuring greater consistency and enhanced complexity with each vintage
• Sur lie aged with lees stirred twice monthly to integrate fruit and oak and promote a creamy mouthfeel
• All of our estate vineyards are certified sustainable by the CCSW (Certified California Sustainable Winegrowing ) and SIP (Sustainability in Practice) programs
• Monterey County’s hillside fruit brings Meyer lemon and lime to the nose
• Santa Barbara County provides tropical fruit and pineapple

Vintage Profile
The 2014 vintage was an unusually easy vintage, yet still a vintage very high in quality; similar to the 2012 and 2013. The great weather, which was mostly frost-free early on, lead to development of excellent flavors and structure. Though it was an earlier vintage, the growing season was of normal length due to the early bud break. Enjoy.

Ratings & Reviews:

89 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"The 2014 Chardonnay Grand Reserve adds a bit more intensity and creaminess through the middle. Apricot jam, chamomile, sweet spices and buttery notes wrap around the voluptuous, inviting finish. This is another tasty, budget-friendly Chardonnay." -- Antonio Galloni (Feb 2016)

89 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Straw yellow in color, this widely available wine offers vanilla, lemon curd, honeysuckle and a touch of browned butter on the nose. Once sipped, seared lemon and yellow apple show first, settling into a vanilla cream groove and finishing on a touch of marshmallow." - Matt Kettmann (8/1/2016)
