Located in the heart of the Sonoma Valley, Kenwood Vineyards is dedicated to producing premium wines truly representative of Sonoma County’s world-class vineyards. Kenwood Vineyards was established in 1970 in the former Pagani Brothers Winery, a historic cellar dating back to 1906. Thoroughly refurbished and modernized, the facility now boasts more than 125 stainless steel fermenting tanks and large oak uprights, and 20,000 small French and American oak barrels, all devoted to Kenwood Vineyards’ “small lot” style of winemaking. In addition to the 22-acre vineyard surrounding the winery, Kenwood Vineyards sources grapes from dozens of vineyards – many farmed sustainably, using natural soil amendments and pest controls whenever possible rather than chemicals - in Sonoma County’s best appellations, including Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma Valley and Sonoma Mountain. Each lot from each vineyard is kept separate throughout the winemaking process, enabling the winemaker to bring it to its fullest potential. This “small lot” or “cuvee” style of winemaking also enables the winemaker to draw on an exceptionally broad “palette” to assemble wines that showcase classic character, subtle complexity and superb balance. As a result, every Kenwood Vineyards wine – whether Table Wine Series, Sonoma Series, Reserve, Jack London Vineyard or Artist Series – is consistent in quality and consistently delicious. Read less

Murky dark prune plum color. Woody (cedar) and earthy nose. Terrific introduction to the tongue/palate. Some black fruit flavor—cherry, currant—on the tip of the tongue. More rustic flavors mid- to back palate—again, hint of cedar, also leather. Any unresolved tannins are balanced by pleasant acid which makes this a very smooth easy drinker. Very long finish.

The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Artist Series reveals rugged tannin in addition to medium to full body, an earthy rusticity, and dark fruits intermixed with foresty/underbrush notes...

Weighty and supple, this continues the strong mid-90s run with its dark fruit, toast and herb nose. There's a touch of sweet sur-maturité (overripeness) here, but there's tangy acidity, too, to keep it together. It's deep and sweet, with blackberry, ... Wine Enthusiast.
