A full-bodied, supple and flavorful Merlot featuring plum, berry, vanilla and chocolate notes, a good balance and soft tannins.
|Wine maker notes
|Kenwood Vineyards creates its award-winning Sonoma
County Merlot from vineyards located in the Sonoma, Dry
Creek and Alexander Valleys. Grapes sourced from
Sonoma Valley provide good color and excellent texture.
The blend is balanced with fruit from the warmer Dry
Creek and Alexander Valley regions that grow grapes
with a more fruit forward character. The resulting wine is
ripe, supple and well-proportioned.
|The Kenwood Merlot has become such a consistent wine; the '06 offers dried fruit flavors with a bit of oak extract; textured and satisfying aftertaste; soft tannins in the finish.
|This wonderfully approachable Merlot is an ideal
complement to pasta dishes as well as roasted
beef and pork.
