Kenwood Vineyards creates its award-winning Sonoma County Merlot from vineyards located in the Sonoma, Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys. Sonoma Valley fruit provides good color and excellent texture. The blend is balanced with grapes from the warmer Dry Creek and Alexander Valley regions that provide more fruit-forward character.
This classic, well-balanced 2010 Merlot combines elegant structure with loads of fruity aromas of plums and fresh berries that are combined with more aromatic notes of bay, cocoa nibs, and vanilla. On the palate, it has an excellent mouthfeel with supple tannins and a long finish.
