WINE & SPIRITS
Kendall Jackson Vintners Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml)
Founded in 1982 when founder Jess Jackson purchased and replanted an 80-acre pear and walnut orchard north of Napa Valley, Kendall Jackson has continually crafted award-winning wines, including presidential recognition from the Reagans. The only American Winery to share ownership in a French stave mill, Kendall-Jackson is committed to aging and fermenting their wines in French oak barrels to produce one of the number one chardonnays in America. On their Alexander Mountain Estate (AME), each grape gets nearly twice the attention compared to the average grape which is only touched 12 times. In 1990, The Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate and Gardens was built by Ken De Baun. Originally meant for tasting and special events, it has become an educational destination for all things food and wine. Kendall-Jackson has continually strived to make their process environmentally sound, socially equitable, and economically viable through various methods, partnerships, and practices. In 2016, they won the prestigious “Green Award” for its strides in sustainability. Each varietal is sustainability cared for, continuing to produce rich and complex flavors. Their flagship wines, Vintner’s Reserve, highlight the vivid fruit flavors coaxed by the cool California coast. The Vintner's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep ruby purple, medium to full-bodied wine with an intense yet approachable flavor. It has aromas of lush, bright blackcherry, blackberry and cassis, round, seamless tannins and a finish with lingering notes of cedar, vanilla and mocha. For pairing, the team at CWs suggests rosemary lamb or barbecued ribs in sauce.
