(From 2012 Vintage) Kenwood Vineyards’ Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is primarily sourced from vineyards located in the Sonoma, Dry Creek, and Alexander Valleys. The 2012 vintage had near perfect growing conditions: a mild and early spring, followed by a week of hot weather just after bloom finished in late May. The summer was dry and mild with cool nights that preserved the grape’s natural acidity as the crop slowly matured. Indian summer weather in September brought the vines to the peak of flavor before they were harvested in October.
(From 1997 Vintage) The resulting wine is deliciously complex with powerful berry, spice and earth flavors. Delicious now, this Cabernet will continue to develop and improve with further bottle aging. The intense and elegant flavors of the 1997 Jack London Cabernet Sauvignon complement a variety of hearty entrees, including steak, lamb and barbecued meats.
