The Russian River empties into the Pacific Ocean, and serves as a channel for the cool ocean fog to move inland from the coast. Kenwood produces its Russian River blend from vineyards located off River Road, where the rocky soil and the ocean’s cooling influence create the ideal conditions for growing Pinot Noir grapes. This full-bodied yet smooth Pinot Noir exhibits fruity aromas of strawberries and raspberries followed by subtle aromas of rose petals and fresh herbs. The viscous texture and supple tannins give way to a long, smooth finish. Composition: 99% Pinot Noir, 1% Syrah Appellation: 97% Russian River Valley, 3% Carneros Aging: 11 months in 1 to 3 year-old French oak barrels Alcohol: 14.5% www.kenwoodvineyards.com (hide)
