Robertparker.com Tasting Note (2018 Vintage)
Lisa Perrotti-Brown - 92 Points - "A blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Malbec, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple in color. It leaps from the glass with warm cassis, baked plums and wild blueberries scents, plus hints of clove oil and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of crunchy fruit, framed by plush tannins and tons of freshness, finishing with a spicy kick."
"As an admirer of the diversity and quality of California's wines, and with nearly 37 years of experience tasting and visiting the state's viticultural regions, wine-broker Kimberly Jones has consistently demonstrated an incredible talent for representing many of the best producers. With her skilled palate, a limitless enthusiasm, and insatiable curiosity, she has assembled a portfolio of wines that is breath-taking in its diversity, value, and exquisite quality."

Some say Kimberly Jones is the Queen of Napa Valley. We agree, but that's not all she does. With nearly 40 years of experience, Kimberly Jones is California's leading fine wine broker. Not only does she release wine from Napa and California, but she also releases stunning reds and whites from France. These include The Arbelist; a Merlot driven blend from right bank Bordeaux and Operation Dragoon; a Southern Rhone red blend of Grenache and Syrah.
KJ wines deftly merge the best of both California and France in style, offering lush and approachable but also refined and balanced versions sure to please lovers and haters of both regions.
Kensington Wine Market is privileged to be one of the exclusive sources for Kimberly Jones Selections wine since 2016.
