Kenwood Jack London Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2003
from Sonoma County, California
Rich and complex with aromas of plum, hazelnut and pipe tobacco and a hint of vanilla; a full-bodied wine with flavors of black currant and rich, elegant tannins with an excellent finish.
The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon fruit was harvested in late September and early October, after an extended growing season. The extra time the grapes hung on the vine gave the resulting wine great depth and complexity. Following fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine was aged in French oak barrels for two years. The resulting wine is incredibly rich with powerful spicy and fruity mint flavors. Delicious now, this Cabernet will continue to develop and improve for at least a decade.

This wine was suggested to us by our waiter on a cruise. He was from Hungary and told us that he only drinks this wine or whiskey. Not being huge cab fans, we could not believe how incredibly smooth is was. Incredible berry bouquet. It pairs well with any food and stands well alone. We came home and bought a case and send a bottle to a friend who is quite a wine expert. Highly recommended for those of us who enjoy a robust red.

I read in a wine magazine that Kenwood's Jack London Cabernet was the best cab voted under $20.00. I went out last week and bought a bottle, and swept off my feet. Upon sipping the wine well into the second day, I looked at my wife and said: "I am blown away by this wine. This is every thing I want in a wine." I t was so smooth, and a finsh that could match any wine costing three times as much. It is really a $60 bottle of wine. I went out and bought a case. This is my new benchmark. If you like cherries, chocolate and silk, this is for you. Joe Kelly
