Kendall Jackson Grand Reserve Merlot 2007


SKU 815840130990


Grown on Clone 595, making this Malbec was pure joy. The vantage point at the top of Atlas Peak reinforces my theory that if a grape has a beautiful view, it will most assuredly become a good wine. Our Grand Reserve Malbec is living proof. Flowery on the nose, the color hue is a deep, dark violet that, after finishing your first glass, you'll note that it almost becomes blue. Tannins are deliciously soft with a perfect mix of blueberry and peppercorn on the palate. Medium to long finish.

Wine EnthusiastVery rich, ripe and dry, a Merlot with a drop of Cabernet that needs a year or two to resolve. It's fat and fleshy in cherries, violets, red currants and cola, with a dusting of cocoa, pepper and cinnamon. The tannins are ample, but very finely ground. Hold until 2011.
