09 Feb One of 2017’s best – Kendall-Jackson Sauvignon Blanc
Things to be leery of: internet deals, one-size-fits-all anything and “Best Buy” lists.
Wine Enthusiast, one of the top magazines in the business, released its Top 100 Best Buys of 2017 a few weeks ago. Amongst the Top 100, Kendall Jackson’s Vintner’s Reserve Sauvignon Blanc. Saw that and immediately reacted with a “Really? Kendall-Jackson? On a “Best Buy” list?”
As the saying goes, “O ye of little faith”.
In this case, “ye” would be me.
K-J’s version of this classic wine has a bit less acid and a bit more tropical fruit flavor than you would expect from sauvignon blanc. On it’s own, it’s quite pleasant. With seafood, it’s a great match. And for less than $13, it’s the epitome a best buy. One more admirable feature: you won’t have any trouble tracking it down.
