Kendall Jackson Stature Cabernet Sauvignon 1997
Wine AdvocateOne of the most beautiful wines in the Stature series is the impressive 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Stature. Sourced from vineyards such as Veeder Peak and Andy Beckstoffer's To-Kalon Vineyard, it offers up creme de cassis aromas intermixed with new saddle leather, vanillin, spice box, and minerals. Full-bodied, rich, and seamless, this voluptuously-textured, thick, juicy Cabernet Sauvignon can be drunk now or cellared for up to two decades.
Wine SpectatorRemarkably elegant and polished, with ripe, sweet, juicy plum and wild berry, turning elegant and sophisticated, with a long, detailed finish. Best from 2002 through 2012. 3,100 cases made.
