Kenwood Jack London Vineyard Zinfandel 2011

External Review by WineExpress.com:

The label is iconic; author Jack London lived in Sonoma County and his ranch is now owned by the California Parks Department. But the lava-terraced vineyards on the ranch are farmed by Kenwood Vineyards who produce this exceptional Zinfandel. The wolf head label tells you it’s the Jack London Vineyard bottling from the outside, but inside, it’s the wine that tells you. Wine Enthusiast scored it 91 points and Wine & Spirits gave it 93 points and WIne Enthusiast Magazine scored it 91 saying "Grab this Zin now, it’s that good a value. Dry, medium-bodied and spicy, it has luscious wild blueberry, cherry, briary herb, vanilla, cola and toast flavors, wrapped into silky tannins for drinking now. In short, this 2011 bottling rocks. Production was just under 5,000 cases."

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
