Kendall-Jackson Jackson Estate Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California, United StatesJackson Estate wines are all about the company’s top estates situated on hillsides, raised benchland and even mountain tops. The Alexander Valley AVA (1984) is home to this cabernet, and is a mix of six vineyards. It has all the hallmarks of a rich red wine: blackberries, black currant, cassis and tannins. It's aged for 19 months in an 83/17 ratio of French to American oak with only 31 percent new barrels. This wine is amazingly approachable now especially with a juicy T-Bone steak, portobello mushrooms, or a grilled lamb chop but you could easily cellar this through 2022.Tasted: 02 March 2018Tasted by: Prices:
