I missed a few weeks posting because I’m on partial vacation and very busy over at Visionary Press Cooperative. Starting a new business is FUN FUN FUN, but soooo time consuming. I’m so glad I’ve got the support of Blaze McRob and Sue Mydliak through our start up!
This will be a quick one just because I wanted to make sure I posted. In fact, I’ll probably post more of our favorites until after the 4th when things settle down a bit.
Anyways, this week I’m mentioning Kendall-Jackson wines, and the first word that comes to mind is consistent. Their Chardonnay is probably our most favorite.
Vintner’s Reserve is where it all began, back in 1982 when Jess Jackson crafted the first bottle of Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay, which gained immediate attention for its unique, bright fruitiness. The 1983 release of Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay won the first Double Platinum Award ever presented by the American Wine Competition. The heart of the Kendall-Jackson portfolio, the Vintner’s Reserve series has continued to win accolades year after year, becoming perennial consumer favorites.
This is the one wine we always have in the fridge during the summer, and we buy it by the case. You always know what to expect when you open a bottle of Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay, and that’s certainly a plus. We also enjoy their other wines, in particular their Merlot is almost always on the rack. (Don’t be a snob. Merlot is a good wine.) In our house Kendall-Jackson varietals get a 3.75 to 4.5 out of 5.
