The suggested California wine:
Kendall Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay
America’s #1 selling Chardonnay for 29 years and counting! It’s no wonder Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay is our most popular release. Handcrafted in small vineyard lots throughout the entire winemaking process, our grapes are from California’s cool, coastal growing regions. Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay is fruit-forward, divinely complex, approachable and exceptionally food-friendly.
Examples of great pairings: Cobb Salad, Pasta with Chicken, Roasted Chicken, Roasted Turkey, Pork or Veal in Cream Sauce with Mushrooms, Mild Soft Cheeses, Lobster with Drawn Butter, Crab with Drawn Butter, Mushroom Risotto, Poached Salmon
90 points, Wine Enthusiast: “This wine interlaces a lightbuttery-oak nuance with vibrant, appealing fruit flavors. It’s medium weight yet fresh, with a smooth, well-balanced palate that displays a harmonized mix of savory oak and citrus nuances.” (May 2019)
