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

Wine & Spirits ReviewThere's a freshness and ease to this zinfandel that plays up the spice of the grape. Juicy, tart cherry flavors hit the tannins with enough impact to spark up their fragrance. This is bright and delicious, the kind of friendly red to buy by the case. For grilled meats, from chicken to quail or lamb.Wine Tasting NotesIntense aromas of blackberries, figs and dried currants with hints of black pepper and licorice; full-bodied, rich flavors with smooth tannins and a long finish.



Tasting Notes:

Concentrated aromas of blackberries and dried figs with spicy notes of black pepper and licorice; full-bodied, rich flavors with powerful tannins and a long finish.

Closure: Cork
