Sonoma County Zinfandel 2016
Kenwood has prided itself on its highly acclaimed, award-winning Sonoma Zinfandel since its first vintage in 1970. The intense spicy and fruity notes make it a perennial favorite with our winemakers. The majority of the fruit used to produce the 2016 vintage was sourced from vineyards located in the Dry Creek Valley long known for crafting superior Zinfandel.
The 2016 vintage had an early dry spring, followed by a long mild summer which gave the vineyards time to slowly mature our Zinfandel grapes to the peak of flavor. Each vineyard lot was fermented and aged separately in French and American oak barrels for 24 months.
