Editorial Reviews for Kenwood Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon. Petit Verdot. Merlot. Syrah Sonoma County
Quite fresh on the nose with red fruit supported by gentle herb, vanilla and bitter root notes. Soft and smooth on entry, this shows a nice, low and firm base of polished tannins with gentle if fresh wild raspberry and pomegranate fruit layered on top. The tannins are really quite fine here. While this is a touch simple, it is freshly fruited and shows a certain vibrancy on the palate. The tannins pop a bit on the finish, adding more savory depth and a more assertive veneer of oak that is not off-putting. Really honest feeling with a rustic edge that I find appealing. 86pts
Tight and slightly leafy on the nose with hints of black tea and tobacco layered over sweet edged black cherry and currant fruit. This shows attractive complexity already. Broad, supple and very well balanced in the mouth with an attractive transparent texture and rather [ure and bright black currant and mulberry flavors supported by well judged oak and some lovely tea and dried herb acetns. There’s some pencil lead that emerges on the backend where the wine shows more red cherry, sour cherry fruit before fading gently on the cedar and vanilla laced finish. Easy to drink but not facile, this will drink well early. 92pts
Jammy and plummy with a nice black currant and Zinberry character on the nose, framed with light charred cedar oak aromas. Light-bodied and fresh in the mouth with a nice cherry tone. This is dry and firm, a smaller wine that sweetens slightly on the back end but remains well balanced and rather subdued right through the modest finish. A smaller scaled table wine that has not succumbed to the “more sweet fruit is better” meme. 85pts

Medium weight purple color in the glass. Some volatiles on the nose. Nice on the tongue. Medium weght, not a whole lot of fruit. A bit of a minty overtone. No tannin at all. Very pleasant, brief finish. Love the price--US$6.03 at Winco.
Dry, well balanced and slightly unremarkable in many ways, but perfectly delicious and great for just about any occasion. This is more Old World than New World, and quite the bargain to boot. It’s a light and fresh wine so don’t overpower it with big, smoky and sweet flavors, instead go for something with simple, clean flavors. Gently grilled pork chops marinated in mustard, white wine and sage are always delicious and would be the perfect yin to this wine’s yang.

This classic, well-balanced Merlot combines elegant structure with loads of fruit. Fruity aromas of raspberry and plum join with aromatic notes of spice, dark chocolate, and French oak. On the palate, it is a well-balanced wine with supple tannins and a lingering finish.
