Kendall Jackson Vintner's Reserve Pinot Noir 2014
Wine EnthusiastThis full-bodied wine is complex and detailed from the spicy perfume to the finish, and rich and satisfying in the middle. Aromas like black tea and rhubarb lead to ripe and deep cherry and slightly tangy raspberry flavors that are lifted by moderate tannins and linger on the finish.
Wine SpectatorDeftly balanced, this is slow to build nuance and complexity, unfolding to reveal tiers of spicy raspberry, black cherry and wilted rose. Though medium-weight, the flavors build intensity and nuance. Drink now through 2020. 50,000 cases made.-J.L.
