3 stars for the price point - but lacking in overall varietal character, body and finish and has a residual sugar sweetness that is unappealing
Excellent wine for the price. Very light and has perfect pairing with many foods. Lovely to also just sip causally. Very pleased overall.
This wine is light. It has citrus notes. Goes with many foods and is a good every day wine.
Kenwood Vineyards was established in 1970 in the former Pagani Brothers Winery, a historic cellar dating back to 1906. Thoroughly refurbished and modernized, the facility now boasts more than 125 stainless steel fermenting tanks and large oak uprights, and 20,000 small French and American oak barrels, all devoted to Kenwood Vineyards’ “small lot” style of winemaking.
In addition to the 22-acre vineyard surrounding the winery, Kenwood Vineyards sources grapes from dozens of vineyards – many farmed sustainably, using natural soil amendments and pest controls whenever possible rather than chemicals - in Sonoma County’s best appellations, including Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma Valley and Sonoma Mountain. Each lot from each vineyard is kept separate throughout the winemaking process, enabling the winemaker to bring it to its fullest potential. This “small lot” or “cuvee” style of winemaking also enables the winemaker to draw on an exceptionally broad “palette” to assemble wines that showcase classic character, subtle complexity and superb balance. As a result, every Kenwood Vineyards wine – whether Table Wine Series, Sonoma Series, Reserve, Jack London Vineyard or Artist Series – is consistent in quality and consistently delicious.
Best served chilled, this Sauvignon Blancmakes an excellent aperitif and complementsa number of dishes. Excellent with lightlysaucedpoultry, shellfish and seafood dishes,as well as spicy Asian cuisine.
