Product Description

WA 89 AG 88 Pts - According to Robert Parker - I tasted seven separate Cabernet Sauvignons from Kendall-Jackson. The least expensive wine (now up to $30.00 a bottle, and all from Sonoma) is their 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintner’s Reserve. They obviously made a choice to go with higher-quality vineyards that raise the price. This is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon (92.7%, and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Syrah, Tannat and Malbec). Not a lot of new oak is used, although nearly two-thirds of it is French and the rest American. This is probably the best Vintner’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon I’ve ever tasted. Sweet black cherries, blackcurrants, licorice, forest floor and subtle barrique notes are followed by a succulent, fleshy, medium-bodied wine loaded with fruit and velvety tannins. This wine will drink well, and possibly even improve, over the next 8-10 years.

According to Antonio Galloni - The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintner's Reserve is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years. Grilled herbs, cedar, new leather and dark red stone fruits add nuance on the soft, supple finish.

According to Wine Enthusiast - Tight and tannic, this majority Cab wine is distinguished by a thickness of black fruit and herbaceous back palate that gives it density, separated by bursts of vanilla and oak. Give it time to open and notes of mocha chocolate should also come through. 92% Cabernet Sauvignon 4% Cabernet Franc 3% Petit Verdot 1% Merlot. 13.5% ABV.
