The majority of grapes in this wine come from Sonoma County’s celebrated Russian River Valley appellation, where the soil combined with the ocean’s cooling influence creates ideal conditions for growing premium Pinot Noir. On the nose, you will find notes of blackberry, black raspberries, bing cherries, with a hint of mocha and a touch of vanilla. The balanced acidity and soft tannins make for a medium-bodied wine that goes well a variety of food such as fig and mushroom pizza or chicken marsala.
Located in the heart of the Sonoma Valley, Kenwood Vineyards is dedicated to producing premium wines truly representative of Sonoma County’s world-class vineyards. Kenwood Vineyards was established in 1970 in the former Pagani Brothers Winery, a historic cellar dating back to 1906. Thoroughly refurbished and modernized, the facility now boasts more than 125 stainless steel fermenting tanks and large oak uprights, and 20,000 small French and American oak barrels, all devoted to Kenwood Vineyards’ “small lot” style of winemaking.
