Kendall Jackson Vintner’s Reserve California Chardonnay 2014 

My Rating 82 Points.   

Price $15. 
Light golden in color.

Oaky nose of vanilla, oak, lemons, melons and citrus.

Full bodied and buttery, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with butter, citrus, lemons, honey, apples, melons, cream and white pepper.

Medium plus in finish, with bitter almonds.

A simple California Chardonnay. Very typical, with lots of oak and vanilla flavors. Nothing more here. Still, drinking well with food.

I had the 2013 a year ago (which I did not like), and this vintage was more balanced. Fermented in small oak barrels.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
