Kenwood "Vintage 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Our quality, value-priced red wine is made from grapes sourced from some of California’s best known grape growing regions. The 2009 vintage is a perfect everyday drinking wine, full of ripe fruit and spicy character in both the mouth and nose. Gentle tannins and a lively mouthfeel round off this accessible, easy-drinking wine. The base of our 2009 Vintage Red is Zinfandel that is primarily sourced from hillside vineyards in Lake County and Old Vine Zin Vineyards in the Lodi region. A bit of Sangiovese, Syrah, and Barbera are added to provide complexity and flavor. Each vineyard is carefully picked at the peak of ripeness and fermented in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation is complete, the components of the blend are kept separate and aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 16 months before bottling.

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
