Our Grand Reserve Merlot is crafted with grapes hand-selected from specific areas of our Jackson Estates Grown vineyards in Sonoma County. An intense concentration of black fruit and dark chocolate is enhanced by 18 months of oak barrel aging. There is seductive fruit tone on the nose and a long, velvety finish.

Wine AdvocateAs you can imagine, the Jackson Family have enormous vineyard sources from which to get their Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Their 2014 Merlot Grand Reserve comes from Sonoma and is 95% Merlot and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot, with a tiny dollop of Cabernet Sauvignon. It is aged mostly in French wood. The wine is soft and ripe, with mocha, roasted herbs, cocoa bean, and some chocolaty plum and cherry notes. The wine has good, rich fruit and is straightforward and attractive. Anticipated maturity: now-2026.
