Winemaker's Notes

The 1997 growing season in Sonoma County produced an outstanding harvest of Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. With a history of crafting exceptional wines, Kenwood Vineyards Winemaker, Mike Lee, selected grapes for the 1997 Artist Series cuvèe predominantly from the Lindholm and Montecillo Vineyards. Both vineyards are located at an elevation of about 1,400 feet on the Mayacamas mountain range, bordering the eastern side of Sonoma Valley. These prominent vineyards are known for generating low-yielding crops of less than three tons per acre, producing complex wines that exhibit a high concentration of vibrant fruit.

An elegant, intensely concentrated wine with vibrant blackberry and black cherry fruit flavors. This wine exhibits rich, deep color and hints of mint, spice and cassis.

Alcohol: 14.3%
