Incredibly smooth and balanced. Decanted for about an hour, which revealed a nice bouquet of aromas of cherries, black currants, berries, oak and earth. Very fruit forward on the palate, exploding with layers of fruits and balanced with nice tannic backbone. Excellent finish with flavors of dark cherries, plum and oak.

From one of the largest and most highly touted vintages in a great decade, this is large and fairly fat. The cassis, fruitcake and menthol nose and sweet blackberry and chocolate palate aim to please...and do just that. It feels a bit low in acidity, ... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1997 Kenwood Cabernet Sauvignon Artist's Series 3000ml

Firmly structured and sufficiently tannic to endure 10 years cellaring. This is a rich, complex, chunky young wine, with glimpses of currant and cherry, turning firm and tight on the finish. Best from 2003 through 2010. 5,275 cases made. (JL) Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1997 Kenwood Cabernet Sauvignon Artist's Series 3000ml
