Wine Review: Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve Summation

The Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Summation is a light aroma California blend. It contains flavors of raspberry jam, black cherry, chocolate and pomegranate. It is blood red color with deep contour. The wines contains a blend of 28% Zinfandel, 27% Merlot, 18% Syrah, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petite Sirah, 3% Grenache, 2% Petit Verdot. The mix offers quick tears and slightly bitter tannin taste. 

It is an everyday household wine that works well with meat, heavy cheese, and spicy foods. The type of pairing is more on par with heavy steak, greasy burgers, and thick sauced pasta. Cheese offerings could include goat cheese, blue cheese, Muenster, and cheddar. Spicy foods such as Cajun, Thai, and Mexican may also work well.  

The Kendall Jackson winery is a family owned affair that seeks to offer high quality products. They grow their grapes in the cool air of Northern California mountain side. The company seeks to maintain sustainability in their products. They continually develop methods to protect the environment while still offering a solid product.
