Kendall Jackson Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay 2018
Lushly ripe pear and butter flavors are backed by vibrant, lemony acidity in this wine. It has good depth, medium body and a creamy texture, but stays balanced and fresh on the palate, leading to a lingering finish. Another outstanding vintage for a classic California wine.
Baked apple and dried apricot flavors dominate this easygoing style. The spicy finish shows hints of caramel. Drink now. 100,000 cases made.
