Kendall Jackson Grand Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2009
|Region||California, North Coast, Mendocino|
We are always looking for Sauvignon Blanc flavors that are unique, true to the variety, pleasant and intriguing. Sauvignon Blanc grown in specific terroirs can sometimes display very strong 'Sauvignon' aromatics. These include boxwood or juniper, guava, fig, grapefruit and pineapple. We wanted to find fruit that added hints of all these, but a little more of the boxwood, gooseberries and light grassy character that is often associated with very cool climate, southern hemisphere Sauvignon Blancs. This Grand Reserve has all these aromatics including a distinctive note that asks to be evaluated over and over in the glass.
A nice, bright and savory Sauvignon Blanc, rich in fruit but dry on the finish. Shows waves of Meyer lemon, pineapple, kiwi, honeysuckle and vanilla flavors, accented with a touch of oak. Enjoyable on its own or with little appetizers.
