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.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine is thick, heavy and tannic, with an herbaceous quality of cedar and pencil. Flavors of dark cherry and chocolate highlight the full-bodied concentration.
