Sonoma County mountain and hillside vineyards add black cherry flavors and structure. Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are blended with Merlot for softness, Cabernet Franc for tannins, Malbec for a hint of chocolate and complexity, and Petit Verdot to enhance the mouthfeel. Over 150,000 cases are made of this wine coming from owner Jess Jackson's vineyards. His company, Jackson Family Wines, includes 35 different brands that produce 5 million cases annually. Kendall-Jackson is by far the largest brand, with La Crema approaching it rapidly. Other key wineries include Arrowood, Matanzas Creek, Byron, Cambria, Lokoya and Yangarra from Australia.

Wine AdvocateA star (especially given the fact that there are 165,682 cases) is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintner's Reserve. Made up of 89.4% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec, all hailing from Sonoma, this is a deep ruby/purple-tinged wine with rich tobacco leaf, blackcurrant and black cherry fruit along with a touch of wood spice and barbecue notes. It is medium-bodied, soft and ideal for drinking over the next 5-6 years.
