Kendall Jackson Vintner's Reserve Pinot Noir nose is pure pinot, with an appealing smoky, black cherry aroma and bits of steeped tea. The mid-palate is rich and round, with more smoky black fruit and fine structure, with a dash of syrah to the blend to bolster the mid-palate and add some complexity.
Kendall Jackson Vintner's Reserve Pinot Noir, comes from grapes grown in coastal vineyards in Monterey, Santa Barbara and elevated Mendocino. A touch of Syrah and other varieties add spiciness to the palate. Monterey lends earthiness, Mendocino for ripe black fruit flavour and Santa Barbara gives the wine a floral nose and rich, ripe fruitiness. Aged for 6 months in French oak.
