Kendall-Jackson Cabernet Sauvignon Vintner's Reserve 2016

Sonoma County, California, United StatesKJVR cabernet is over 30 years old and it is only getting better thanks to a deep reserve of fruit sources. The blend is 85/6/4/4/1/ cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, petit verdot, malbec and merlot, almost entirely Sonoma sourced. It’s aged just under a year in a mix of French and American oak barrels and stainless steel. The nose is open and inviting with fresh black cherry, blackberry, cedar and cassis with a hint of mocha. The palate is similar with more black fruit, cassis and savoury Sonoma undercurrents. It’s ready to drink and a fine match for barbecued beef.Tasted: 24 September 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 31.99 private wine shops AB 28.99 private wine shops US 18.00 retail ON 22.95 LCBO QC 24.95 SAQ Producer: Kendall-Jackson Vineyards and WineryDistributors: Summit Fine Wines
