Kenwood Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
from Sonoma County, California
Our 2005 Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon is a
luscious wine with great depth and focused
tannins. It exhibits complex aromas of cassis, tea
leaves and a hint of licorice. The wine is ready for
enjoyment now but its full-bodied flavor will allow
it to improve for many years.
The 2005 Vintage marks the 31st release of Artist
Series Cabernet Sauvignon from Kenwood
Vineyards. The harvest produced a bountiful crop
of Cabernet Sauvignon with a distinctly rich and
complex flavor that is followed by spicy and
aromatic notes. After picking, the grapes were
crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks and
then settled and racked twice before going down
to barrels in December of 2005. After 29 months
of barrel aging the very best lots were carefully
selected and then blended and bottled. After
bottling, the wine was aged for an additional year
and a half before it was released.
Each year since the 1975 vintage our winemakers
taste individual barrels of our finest lots of
Cabernet Sauvignon at the end of aging and select
only the best to become part of the Artist Series
blend. The result is a flavorful and intense wine
that represents less than 2% of our total Cabernet
About the Artist
Swiss-born German artist Paul Klee (1879-1940) was a major contributor to 20th century art not only with his paintings but also with his theory, teachings and written compositions. Influenced by travels to Egypt, his monumental "Highway and Byways" (1929) is a reflection of rhythm and proportion, an interpretation of landscape
divided by vertical and horizontal networks. It is one of his many profound works that illustrate his ability to experiment with and invent new ways of expression.
