About Kenwood 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, Artist Series, Sonoma

For more than three decades, Kenwood's Artist Series Red remains the ultimate expression of artistry and fine winemaking by blending the finest Cabernet Sauvignon produced in Sonoma County. For the label of this 2009, internationally renowned artist, Markus Linnenbrink, a German contemporary artist recognized worldwide for his resin paintings, sculpture and installation art created a truly enticing work reminiscent of the Cabernet's complexity. It's a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3.5% Malbec and 3.5% Petit Verdot sourced 54.5% from Sonoma Valley, 42% from Dry Creek Valley and 3.5% from Lake County. The wine aged 26 months in 85% French oak and 15% American oak barrels. Wine Revire Online scored this 93 points saying "The Artist Series showcases the winemaker's art of blending lots from different sources, with this vintage using fruit from Kenwood's estate vineyards in Sonoma County along with select lots from Dry Creek Valley and Knights Valley. The result is a rich, balanced wine that shows classic Sonoma character -- blackberry, cassis, dried herbs and bits of white pepper, anise and spearmint are present in both the aroma and flavor profiles, with bright food friendly acidity and supple tannins that extend the rich finish. This will be tough to keep your hands off of, so get enough to try over several years. And thanks to Kenwood for keeping the lid on the pricing -- this Artist will hold its own against California Cabernet at three times the price."
