Winemaker's Notes

The 2006 vintage was marked by a long ripening season with temperate weather which gave the grapes ample "hang time" on the vine. This extra period of ripening allowed the flavor of the grapes to fully develop. Harvested in late September to mid October each vineyard lot was picked at the peak of flavor and then fermented separately in stainless steel tanks before ageing separately in American and French oak barrels for 18 months. Just prior to bottling, the lots were blended to create a wine with intense blackberry jam flavors and delightful spicy notes. The 2006 vintage of Sonoma County Zinfandel is enjoyable now but should continue to improve with cellar ageing.

Our Sonoma County Zinfandel is delicious with grilled meats, rich tomato-based dishes and spicy ethnic cuisine.

I was a bit nervous to buy an unrated wine from a huge winery like Kenwood, but I was very pleasantly surprised!

This wine was well worth the money. A bit of a bargain actually. It had good character with soft tannins. Unfortunately there were only three bottles left for me to buy.

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
