Kendall Jackson Vintner's Reserve Pinot Noir 2017
Ripe fruit flavors and a generous helping of oak spices make this full-bodied wine flavorful and easy to sip. It brings cinnamon and red cherry to the nose, and black cherry, cranberry and baking spices to the palate.
Juicy, with good cut to the red currant, cherry and raspberry flavors, backed by crunchy acidity. White pepper notes show on the finish. Drink now. 100,000 cases made.
Spice cherries, raspberries and sassafras notes all emerge from the 2017 Pinot Noir Vintners Reserve, which is medium-bodied and nicely balanced, with a classy finish. While too many Pinot Noirs at this price point are sweet and overdone, this is solid.
