Kenwood Cabernet Sauvignon Jack London Vineyard So 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 vintage had a long growing season with low yields resulting in grapes with intense flavor and rich character. The fruit was picked at the peak of ripeness in late September in early October and then crushed into stainless steel tanks for fermentation. After fermentation the young wine was pressed and settled before aging in French and American oak barrels for two years. The resulting wine has rich mouth feel as well as powerful fruity and aromatic flavors. Delicious now, this Cabernet will continue to develop and improve for at least a decade.

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

The 2006 Kenwood Jack London Cab is surprisingly elegant. Dare I say reserved, even? With nearly 5 years of bottle age, it is drinking beautifully right now and has benefited from the passage of time. For a CA Cab, it is reserved. Dark aromas and flavors seduce you....hints of smoke, cigar box, and a remarkable amount of chocolate on the finish. Full-bodied with black fruits predominating: black cherry, blackberry. Some baking spices add to the complexity: cinnamon & cardamom. There's serious dark earth in this, both on the nose and the palate. This is a brooding wine in the best sense of that term. It drinks like a significantly higher-end Cab, and is a real achievement on the part of Kenwood. I've got to give credit where credit is due. Well done, Kenwood!

winemaker's notes: A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, and 3% Syrah compose this red wine. Rich and complex aroma with notes of boysenberries, mint, and chocolate covered cherries; a full-bodied wine with well structured tannins and an excellent finish.

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast"Delicious now for its dry, savory flavors of black and red cherries, red currants, violets, mocha and cedar. The sturdy tannins typical of this vineyard provide a fine structure. Lovely now with lamb chops."Winemaker's Notes"The 2006 Merlot crop from the London ranch was harvested in late September. The vintage had a mild growing season and a light crop that resulted in wines with excellent structure and ageability. The grapes were crushed and then fermented in stainless steel before aging in French and American oak barrels for 20 months.Vibrant aromas of fresh cherries with hints of bay leaf and vanilla, lively acidity is balanced by well structured tannins and an excellent finish."

Tasting Notes:

Multifaceted aromas of cassis and dried cherries with subtle notes of mint and sage; viscous, full-bodied mouth-feel with firm tannins and an excellent lingering finish.
