The Kendall Jackson is a pleasant sipper, not overbearing or too rich, some minerality and acid and hints of something greater which the label would have you believe you’d find but we were at a loss. As chardonnays go it’s versatile and, I don’t know how to put this except bluntly: Inoffensive. It isn’t bad, it just doesn’t rise to the occasion. But now and again it’s a handy fallback. It was, however, absolutely the wrong wine for olives, capers, tuna, lemon Dijon dressing, etc. With a little air and time out of the fridge there is a mellowness which makes it a tad more appealing.
Price: At $24 at BC Liquor, overpriced, but around $15 USD in WA, a sure bet.
Market Liquidity: Good effort, no podium.
