Kendall-Jackson Syrah California Vintner's Reserve

Wine Details





Wine Description

(1998 Vintage) Bold, concentrated aromas and flavors of wild berry, spice and smoke. Lush and full on the palate, showing elegance through the lingering finish. This versatile wine is a fine accompaniment to grilled lamb, stews, roasted tomatoes and rich cheeses. - Randy Ullom, Winemaster

    (2004 Vintage) Sweet, slightly smoky and hinting loosely at ripe berries in both its medium-deep aromas and flavors, this one exhibits plenty of mass in the mouth, but it comes up short on beauty and polish and runs...

    (2006 Vintage) 9% Zinfandel; 4% Grenache. There is always a question about consistency when a wine is made in large lots, but our sample of Kendall-Jackson's everyday-priced Syrah shows a professional hand with respect to composition and well-defined fruit. Fairly deep, nicely balanced and not so tannic as to preclude drinking now, it is a downright steal at the price. GOOD VALUE
