Wine Review: Kendall Jackson is the king of value priced Chardonnay. The 2006 Grand Reserve is wine that shows you why. This pale yellow wine opens with a mild light pear bouquet with hints of green apple. On the palate, this wine is elegant, nicely balanced, and has nice fruit up front. The wine displays crisp green apple flavors with a touch of lime and very subtle oak nuances. The finish is dry and lingers slightly. This wine is a versatile that would pair well with lemon chicken or halibut with lemon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: “Elegant and tropical with hints of lemon oil essence, key lime and yellow grapefruit. Notes of ripe pineapple and mango can be found throughout this exquisitely balanced Chardonnay. Lushly layered and viscous with a firm acidity and enchanting creamy texture. The finish lingers on and on.”
