Plum, raspberry jam and blackberry flavours are supported with solid chalky tannins in this Vintner's Reserve Zinfandel. Sultry cedar and spice accents linger on this captivating, long-finishing wine.

Dynamic raspberry and spice flavours emanate from the grapes grown in Mendocino County, with luscious jam and strawberry flavours from Sonoma County fruit.

This wine was aged in small French and American oak barrels, 11% new. The lots are kept separate until the final blend so that the winemakers have the ability to craft a wine that exhibits the perfect marriage of complexity, flavours and aromas combined with a structured finish.

Jackson Family Wines is a collection of independent, premium wineries founded by the late Jess Jackson and his wife Barbara Banke; the company actively remains under the ownership of Barbara and her children Christopher, Julia and Katie. The family vision is to make luxury wines from the great wine growing regions of the world. In total they own approximately 14,000 acres of premium vineyards in California, all of which are coastal and from renowned regions such as Sonoma, Napa, Monterey, Mendocino and Santa Barbara. Jackson Family Wines also own wineries in St. Emilion, Chile, Tuscany and McLaren Vale.

The family describe themselves as temporary ‘stewards’ of the land and are at the forefront of the sustainability movement in the wine industry. Jess Jackson quickly understood the importance of ‘terroir’ and much of the success of the company has been built on his astute selection of vineyards. The Californian vineyards are located on mountains, ridges, hillsides and benches where the vine has to struggle to survive under difficult conditions producing a higher quality wine. High elevation and close proximity to the ocean both play a crucial role in moderating temperatures, resulting in greater flavour, concentration and complexity.

Kendall-Jackson was established in 1982 by Jess Jackson with the first vintage of Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay. It fast became one of the leading premium quality Californian wineries and has maintained this position by continually enhancing the quality of the wines.
