Since 1976, Kenwood Vineyards has produced wines from Jack London's historic vineyard in Glen Ellen, Sonoma. This unique red lava soil vineyard, located on the eastern slope of Sonoma Mountain, was first planted in the late 1800s. It has always produced red wines distinct in depth and varietal character. The Kenwood 2006 Jack London Cabernet Sauvignon fruit was harvested in late September and the resulting wine is wonderfully complex with powerful berry, spice and earth flavors. Delicious now, this Cabernet will continue to develop and improve for at least a decade.
96% Cabernet Sauvignon 4% Merlot 100% Harvested from the historic Jack London Vineyard located on the west side of Sonoma Valley on Sonoma Mountain.
New release of Caymus' 2017 Cabernet now available! Caymus makes one of Napa Valley's most popular Cabernet Sauvignons and the 2017 is another stellar wine.
previous vintage 94 Points Robert Parker: "The Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley has a dense opaque purple color, a kiss of blackberry and cassis fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel with ripe tannin and a long finish. It is very Caymus in its immediate accessibility, but has plenty of staying power and depth. This is lush, full, intense and pure. Drink it over the next 15 or so years."
Caymus Vineyards produces two Cabernets Sauvignons – a “Napa Valley” and the venerable “Special Selection”. Both Cabernet bottlings have aromas and flavors which can only be achieved through “hang time” – a technique which chances the loss of crop if early winter sets in. Leaving the fruit to “hang” on the vine unusually long develops suppleness, increases color, and matures the tannins of the grapes. The wines are abundant in textural tannins yet soft as velvet. Crop thinning, allowing measured sunlight to reach the vine’s fruit zone, and waiting for increased ripeness are all part of our viticultural practices. Caymus Cabernets offer a wide array of aromas and flavors including cocoa, cassis and vanilla. The new Caymus 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley release is one of the best cabs in years!
