Kendall Jackson Grand Reserve Merlot 2013
Wine SpectatorSolidly built, with aromas of currant and cedar leading to firm flavors of cherry, herb and spice. Drink now through 2023. 14,216 cases made.
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.
