AG 90 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - Dark red cherry, plum, savory herbs, gravel, mint, smoke and tobacco are some of the many notes that inform the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Reserve. Voluptuous and racy to the core, the 2011 is powerful, layered and accessible. It should drink well for at least a handful of years.
According to Robert Parker - The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Reserve comes from K-J’s holdings in Sonoma, primarily Knights Valley. Composed of 94.9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4.4% Petit Verdot and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc, aged primarily in French oak although some American oak is utilized, this is a powerful, rich, concentrated and convincing effort for a 2011. Deep cassis flavors intermixed with cedarwood, vanillin, spice box and licorice emerge from this medium to full-bodied, ripe, attractive wine. Drink it over the next decade.
According to Wine Enthusiast - There’s some real complexity to this Cab, which was blended with Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Bone dry, its flavors range from blackberries and currants to red cherry marmalade, bacon, black pepper and sandalwood. The tannins are strong and not likely to age away, so drink up
Tasting Notes - This Cabernet has distinct flavors of blackberry,blueberry, and both red and black currants with enticing fragrances of mocha and nutmeg. Subtle notes of chocolate and toasty vanillins add to the richness and length of this bold Cab, and are accompanied by fine grained tannins on a lengthy finish. 94.8% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4.4% Petit Verdot, 0.5% Merlot, 0.2% Cabernet Franc. 13.5% ABV. Rated 90+
