Kendall Jackson Chardonnay Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay 2006
With a plus for friendly creaminess.

This Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay is from the Vintner's Reserve line, a value-priced line - in contrast to the higher-priced Grand Reserve Chardonnay, which I reviewed earlier. It also happens to be the most widely-sold wine in restaurants in the United States. Let's see what it's made of...In the glass, the Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay shows a bit towards the golden side of yellow. Buttery-fruit aroma, with hints of oak. Quite bold, really.The flavor is not quite as dramatic as the aromas, coming forward with a sweet, lightly acid-tinged peach fruit smack in the front of your mouth. Then it slides along towards the rear, bringing more cream and butterscotch. Finish is rich and moderate in length. Three stars out of five, with a plus for friendly creaminess. Good for sipping stand-alone or with a savory meal.Can't find a professional review of the 2006 vintage yet, though Robert Parker has tended to rate past vintages in the 87-89 range.More reviews at spiritofwine.blogspot.com.
