Description

Kenwood Vineyards' Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is primarily sourced from vineyards located in the Dry Creek, Sonoma and Alexander Valleys. Each vineyard lot is kept separate throughout fermentation and aging to preserve the unique flavors of the individual vineyards that are brought together for the final blend.

Vintage Notes

The 2008 growing season was mild and dry with smaller than usual yields giving especially concentrated fruit. Beginning in late September each vineyard was carefully picked as it reached its optimum maturity. After fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine was aged in French, Eastern European and American oak barrels for 24 months. Before bottling, small amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Syrah were added to the final blend to give the wine balance and complexity. This produced a rich and multifaceted wine that is enjoyable now as well as for several years to come.
