after riding in Napa cabs for some time, a friend took me for a ride in his zin...what a pleasant surprise! put me on a prolonged misson to search out limited local remaining supply and I promptly bought 5 bottles! This has truly awakened my interest in future zin'ing from other zinyards!

Winery notes- Our Sonoma County Zinfandel has rich zinfandel-characters of aromas like blackberries spices and notes of vanilla from aging in French and American oak. Broad velvety tannins give it excellent body and a long finish.

The bouquet begins with fruity aromas of dried cherries, blueberries and cassis and is followed by spicy aromatic notes of sage and sassafras.

A full-bodied, supple and flavorful Merlot featuring plum, berry, vanilla and chocolate notes, a good balance and soft tannins.

Kenwood winery, located in the heart of Sonoma, was founded in the early 1970's and year after year has made consistent, enjoyable Zinfandels. Their Sonoma County Zinfandel is characterized by blackberry and mocha notes, followed by a spicy finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

This vintage of Kenwood Vineyards' Artist Series exhibits the complex and intense flavors for which the wine has become famous. The bouquet begins with fruity aromas of dried cherries, blueberries and cassis and is followed by spicy aromatic notes of sage and sassafras. The mouthfeel of the wine is full bodied with well-structured tannins, flavors of pomegranate and hints of vanilla. This wine is delicious now and should continue to improve for at least a decade.
