When Diane and Ken Wilson first visited the Mendocino County property they fell in love with the patchwork of California oaks and the Russian River running along the vineyards. Bringing this Mendocino vineyard back to life was a challenge they could not pass up. First renovating the historic Farmhouse on the hill and then focusing on the vineyards this project kept them busy this year. Ken, born and raised in Ontario Canada, is passionate about his vineyards and wineries. And this property reminded him of his grandfathers and their passion for farming and land. They named the winery after them both, Jack Wilson and Cecile Keys are being honored with the new label. Read less

Tasting Notes:

The Zinfandel gives it the spicy, peppery qualities; the Petite Sirah adds good tannins and mouthfeel along with blackberry notes; the Grenache pitches in with a silky texture and flavors of dried cherry while the Syrah brings up the rear with chocolate and raspberry. It is outstanding with roast turkey or grilled salmon while also being perfectly capable of standing up to beef.
