Kendall Jackson Sauvignon Blanc Vintner's Reserve California
The concept "Jackson Estates Grown" is the heart of our winemaking. Every grape for the Vintner's Reserve wines is grown in cool coastal vineyards that are managed by the Kendall-Jackson viticultural team. In the winery, this gives our Winemaster a broad palette of aromas and flavors to work with when layering together the final blend.
|"Lime, melon and Anjou pears intermingle with sweetand tropical fruits such as fig and kiwi to create this delightfully refreshing wine. Hints of grapefruit highlight the mineral qualities of this wine’s surprisingly long finish." – Randy Ullom, Winemaster
|Green Bean Salad with Feta, Almonds and Lemon Vinaigrette
Serve with Kendall-Jackson Sauvignon Blanc
1 Tbsp. kosher salt
3 lbs. green beans, trimmed
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 C. olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground white pepper

Fill a large stockpot with water. Add the salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the green beans and cook until tender, 2-3 minutes. Drain in a colander and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking. Let drain.
Whisk together the lemon juice, vinegar, and mustard in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until the mixture becomes thick. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the green beans to a serving bowl. Add the onion and feta. Pour the vinaigrette over the vegetables and toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle the top with the almonds and serve.
