Smooth, ripe and complex, with a pretty array of spicy currant, black cherry, anise, sage and cedary oak flavors. Rich and concentrated. Most of the tannin has softened quite enjoyably. (JL)
Kenwood Vineyards was established in 1970 in the former Pagani Brothers Winery, a historic cellar dating back to 1906. Most of the fruit for this vintage came from a dry-farmed hillside vineyard in the Mayacamas Range. Each lot from each vineyard is kept separate throughout the winemaking process. Fruit from the estate Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard located on the south-east slopes of Sonoma Mountain was blended with Cabernet Franc and Merlot from the Sonoma Valley. This vintage's label was Man with a Balance by Joan Miró. The tech sheet says nothing about the oak regime. Still deeply coloured. Lovely undergrowth and mushroom aroma, a little nutty and cedary. Dry, fine and just really tasty with a hint of savoury yeast extract, polished wood but still showing surprisingly youthful cassis fruit. 17.5/20 Points (JH)
