The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Reserve is blended of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 3% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc, aged 21 months in 27% new French and 1% new American oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with compelling cassis, black cherries and warm plums scents with hints of bay leaves, Marmite toast and black olives. Medium to full-bodied, the palate gives mouth-filling black currant and plums flavors with a firm, grainy frame and loads of herbal sparks on the finish.

91 pts Vinous

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Reserve is laced with black cherry, plum, grilled herbs, chocolate and menthol. Medium in body, with good underpinnings of both acidity and structure, the Grande Reserve delivers the goods. It is another impeccable wine in this range from Kendall-Jackson.

A selection of top lots from Knights Valley, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Reserve offers more dark fruits and cassis notes as well as hints of graphite and scorched earth. It’s a step up over the Vintner’s Reserve, is medium to full-bodied, has good concentration, and outstanding length. Drink it over the coming 5-7 years.

90 pts Wine Enthusiast

This is a thick, chewy and full-bodied red that will appeal to a wide range of palates and budgets. Bright underlying red fruit enlivens the firm tannic structure and integrated oak, finishing soft and smooth on the palate.

88 pts Wine Spectator

Forward, with a dose of roasted vanilla surrounding the core of plum and black cherry compote flavors. Drink now through 2022. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
