2012 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

Kenwood Vineyards’ Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is primarily sourced from vineyards located in the Dry Creek, Sonoma and Alexander Valleys. Each vineyard lot is kept separate throughout fermentation and aging to preserve the unique flavors of the individual vineyards that are brought together for the final blend. Ripe fruit aromas of blackcurrant, cherry and plum with notes of licorice and nutmeg. Full-bodied flavor with excellent acid balance and well-structured tannins that give way to a long finish.

Winemaker Notes

The vintage of 2012 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.

Food Pairings
