Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

The 2006 Vintage marks the 32nd release of Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon from Kenwood Vineyards. The 2006 growing season began with a wet and cool spring, followed by a warm and dry summer. In late September and early October, the weather cooled and we harvested the Cabernet Sauvignon that produced this year’s Artist Series blend. 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 2006. After 28 months of barrel aging, the very best lots were carefully selected, blended and bottled. After bottling, the wine was aged for an additional year and a half before it was released.

Winemakers Notes

Each year since the 1975 vintage, our winemakers taste individual barrels of our finest lots of Cabernet Sauvignon at the end of aging and select only the best to become part of the Artist Series blend. The result is a true “reserve” wine that represents less than 2 percent of our Cabernet Sauvignon production.
