2006 Kendall Jackson Chardonnay Grand Reserve
|Varietal:||Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, & Cabernet Franc|
Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesClean and fruity but also bothered by a grassy, slightly pungent first note, this mid-depth offering is fairly full in body but veers towards restraint rather than power in personality. Its moderately fruity flavors run into a chalky edge of coarseness at the finish. Richer than the Vintner.s Reserve above, but not so openly fruity, this one is outgunned by its less expen-sive, long-production mate.
