One of California’s premium wine pioneers, Kenwood Vineyards is in the heart of Sonoma County. We craft wines with unique varietal character driven from Sonoma’s diverse terroir. Our small-lot winemaking philosophy reflects our dedication to the details, ensuring our wines capture the best Sonoma has to offer.
Each vineyard was harvested as it reached the peak of ripeness and was kept separate throughout fermentation and aging to preserve its unique flavors. The wines were aged for 23 months in French, Eastern European, and American oak barrels. A small amount of Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc were added to the final blend to enhance the wines’ balance and complexity.
Delicious aromas of cassis, plum and black cherry accompany spicy notes of nutmeg, sage and vanilla. This full-bodied wine has bright flavors with a lively pallet that ends with a long, elegant finish.
