Complex flavors of red currant and raspberries followed by hints of black licorice. Full-bodied and smooth with rich tannins and a lingering finish.
Kenwood Vineyard's Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is made predominantly of fruit sourced from vineyards located in the Sonoma, Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys. Each vineyard lot is kept separate throughout fermentation and aging to preserve the unique flavors of the individual vineyards that create this consistent, award-winning wine. The growing season of 2005 had a bountiful crop and near-perfect ripening conditions that allowed the fruit to reach its optimum flavor and maturity. After fermenting the grapes in stainless steel tanks, the wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for 23 months. Before bottling, Merlot and Cabernet Franc were added to the final blend. The result is a rich, complex, and fruity wine that has flavor reminiscent of black current jam and sweet pipe tobacco. Enjoyable now, the wine in this bottle will continue to improve with age.
Inviting aromas of blackberry black tea and wildflowers begin the nose of this Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is concentrated and structured with sweet dark berry fruit and elegant round tannins.
Dry and balanced, it shows the deft hand of the winery, a softly delicious Bordeaux-style wine with lushly ripe cherry, cassis and spicy oak flavors, and a long, smooth, elegant finish.
Kenwood Vineyard's Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is made predominantly of fruit sourced from Estate ranches in Sonoma Valley. Each vineyard lot is kept separate throughout fermentation and aging to preserve the unique flavors of the individual vineyards that create this rich, complex, and fruity wine that has flavor reminiscent of raspberry truffles. Enjoyable now, the wine in this bottle will continue to improve with age. Serve the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon with rich pasta dishes, lamb and steak.
