Black plum, boysenberry, and cherry flavors dance amongst the violet, chocolate and cedar notes. This wine is smooth and the tannins are refined and round. In true Merlot character, this wine caresses the mouth and lingers beyond each sip

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Merlot Grand Reserve, which comes from Jackson Vineyards in Sonoma, is 98% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, Malbec and a tiny bit of Cabernet Sauvignon, aged 88% in French oak and the rest American wood. There are 14,000 cases and this wine actually didn't show as well as the less expensive offerings under the Vintner's Reserve moniker. It could be just the day I tasted it.
