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 AdvocateThe 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintner's Reserve is a blend of 92.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec, 1.5% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot, aged 12 months in 65% French and 35% American oak (14% new overall). Deep ruby-purple, it opens with cassis, grilled black plum, blueberries, vanilla bean and pie spices with red fruit sparks. Medium to full-bodied, it offers great flavor intensity, a grainy frame and juicy acidity to lift the long finish. This is approachable right out of the gate and great value. 163,442 cases produced.

Wine SpectatorSleek in feel, with an herb-laced cassis core and floral notes in the background. A light mineral twinge runs through the focused finish. Drink now through 2022.
