Kenefick Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2003

Member Review by Gold Medal Wine Club:

This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Platinum Series selection. The Kenefick Ranch 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a Napa Valley wine that should be in every Cabernet lover’s cellar. TheConnoisseur’s Guiderated this fabulous wine 91 Points, "Although certainly charged with plenty of very direct and easy-to-access fruitiness as befits its relative youth, this solidly stuffed effort exhibits both real varietal complexity and a sense of wine-making polish that marks it as a serious wine.” The dynamic Cabernet also won a Gold Medal at the West Coast Wine Competition. The 2003 Kenefick Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is deep black cherry color with a complex bouquet of caramel chocolate, fine leather, toasty oak, vanilla, cassis and black cherries. The Cabernet Sauvignon immediately opens up to multi-ted flavors of bittersweet chocolate, ripe plums and peaches with black spices. Incredibly structured with a long, lingering finish. Aged 18 months new French oak. Unfined and unfiltered, decanting is recommended by the winemaker. 100% Estate Grown; 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 1.8% Cabernet Franc. Enjoy now until 2015.
