Nice spicy, peppery character to this pinot, almost like a pinot-zin hybrid. It has all the great qualities of a good Russian River pinot noir with that added bonus. Try it! P.S. It got even better and more complex the second day. It keep evolving and for the money, it's a great pinot!!

pas mal. and available at safeway in san francisco! i had this once before on christmas and loved it. the second time, in san francisco for new years. and it was not as good. maybe i bought the wrong year. or maybe it paled in comparison to the merlot i had just before. i will have to try it again and see. i bought another russian river pinot noir at the Ferry building for $35 dollars on recommendation from the manager there (trying to avoid the $45+ range) and it was so not worth it. guess you can't really judge wine by the price & region. in california anyway.

Not what I was looking for. Thin and a quick finish. Lacking in complexity. Too bad, as some fine Pinot Noir comes from the Russian River area.

Fantastic pinot noir. Something that everyone likes, great to bring as a host/hostess gift, or to entertain with!

Wine Tasting NotesComplex aromas of dried cherries, figs and sage combine with vanilla notes from aging in French oak. Rich and full-bodied mouth feel followed by a long, lingering finish.

Offers an earthy cherry-rhubarb edge, with mineral and spice flavors that are clean and pleasantly earthy, ending with a baked pie flavor and firm tannins. Drink now through 2013.


External Review

Strawberry, raspberry and black cherry flavors are bright, focused and concentrated, with modest tannin and a hint of toasty oak. Drink now through 2007.

Fairly light in color and texture, with a blend of cherry and herb flavors couched in medium acidity. Finishes moderately, with hints of tea and earth. Drink now through 2002.

Kenwood has done a very good job crafting a delicate, lighter-bodied Pinot that's rich in real varietal flavor. Polished cherry, cola, pomegranate, coffee, rhubarb and Asian spice flavors, with a balanced finish.


External Review

A little one-dimensional, this soft Pinot has forward flavors of cherries, raspberries, cola, vanilla, mint and smoke. It's an easy wine to like, with a silky texture and clean, spicy finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this Pinot Noir were grown in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley viticultural appellation. The Russian River empties into the Pacific Ocean, and serves as a channel for the cool ocean fog to move inland from the coast. Kenwood produces its Russian River blend from vineyards located off River Road, where the rocky soil and the ocean’s cooling influence create the ideal conditions for growing Pinot Noir grapes. This full-bodied yet smooth Pinot Noir exhibits fruity aromas of strawberries and raspberries followed by subtle aromas of rose petals and fresh herbs. The viscous texture and supple tannins give way to a long, smooth finish. Composition: 99% Pinot Noir, 1% Syrah Appellation: 97% Russian River Valley, 3% Carneros Aging: 11 months in 1 to 3 year-old French oak barrels Alcohol: 14.5% www.kenwoodvineyards.com
