Kendall-Jackson, Sonoma County (California) Cabernet Sauvignon “Grand Reserve” 2014

($28):  This is Kendall-Jackson’s mid-tier Cabernet Sauvignon, positioned between their Vintner’s Reserve and their Alexander Valley Jackson Estate bottlings.  A balanced blend of five Bordeaux grapes (Cabernet Sauvignon [81%], Petit Verdot [9%], Merlot [5%], Cabernet Franc [3%] and Malbec), it’s focused on dark fruit flavors.  Suave and soft tannins make it ideal for current consumption.
