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

Very fruity with nice grapefruit and citrus flavors. I think the wine is smooth and very drinkable.

Guava, lemon & lime aromas... nice everyday Sauvignon Blanc & very food friendly. Lemon & lime flavors with a hint of herb characteristics.

Pineapple flavors on the nose and palate. Light and watery. Lacking some of the grassiness and crispness that I was hoping to get.

This is a good everyday Sauvignon Blanc for drinking with chicken, ham sandwiches or fish tacos. Slightly sweet in orange and vanilla, it's accompanied by crisp acidity. - S.H.

Juicy and bright, with citrus, apple and melon flavors joined by a hint of chamomile tea. Drink now. 73,000 cases made. -MW

Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. A whiff of matchstick in its nose and a slight burn at its finish presently hold this otherwise fresh, fruit-focused, smaller-scaled offering back, and, if sure to benefit from even six months of aging, it is and will always be simple wine with limited varietal character at best.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
