Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

The 2005 Vintage marks the 31st release of Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon from Kenwood Vineyards. The harvest produced a bountiful crop of Cabernet Sauvignon with a distinctly rich and complex flavor that is followed by spicy and aromatic notes. After picking, the grapes were crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks and then settled and racked twice before going down to barrels in December of 2005. After 29 months of barrel aging the very best lots were carefully selected and then blended and bottled. After bottling, the wine was aged for an additional year and a half before it was released.

Winemakers Notes

Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits intense aromas of black currant, licorice and sandalwood, plus a background note of mint. Concentrated flavors of black currant, blackberry, dark chocolate and cedar blossom with aeration, show different facets over time. The powerful flavors are matched by a dense palate that stays smooth through the lingering finish. While already approachable, the 2005 Kenwood Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon’s combination of balancing acidity and integrated “soft” tannins suggest continued development with cellaring.
