Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) The grapes for this Pinot Noir were grown in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley viticultural appellation. 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 soil combined with the ocean’s cooling influence creates the ideal conditions for growing Pinot Noir. Seventy percent of the grapes were grown on estate vineyards. A small amount of Syrah was added to the final blend to supply additional body and complexity.
