Flavorful aromas of fresh raspberries and cherries followed by subtle notes of vanilla and cola;
excellent acid balance with smooth tannins and a lingering finish.
DON'T do this...Rodney Strong more smooth for $2.00 per bottle.
Nice smooth pinot noir with subtle agreeabe flavor
A very nice pinot. Would recommend anyone try it if you like a nice light red.
great value for $12, better than many $30 ines I have in my cellar
Soft and easy to drink. For the price probably the best Pinot Noir we've had.
Though not a great PN fan, this one does quite well.
Wine Maker Notes
The grapes for this Pinot Noir were grown in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley viticultural appellation. The Russian River empties into the Pacific Ocean and serves as a channel for the cool ocean fog to move inland from the coast. Kenwood produces its Russian River blend from vineyards located off River Road, where the soil combined with the ocean’s cooling influence creates the ideal conditions for growing Pinot Noir. Sixty-two percent of the grapes were grown on estate vineyards. A small amount of Syrah was added to the final blend to supply additional body and complexity.
This refreshing, fruity Pinot Noir is wonderfully versatile on the table and can be served with a wide range of foods, including pork, chicken, lamb and salmon.
