One of California’s premium wine pioneers, Kenwood Vineyards is in the heart of Sonoma County. We craft wines with unique varietal character driven from Sonoma’s diverse terroir. Our small-lot winemaking philosophy reflects our dedication to the details, ensuring our wines capture the best Sonoma has to offer.
The majority of grapes in our Pinot Noir come from Sonoma County’s celebrated Russian River Valley appellation, where the soil combined with the ocean’s cooling influence creates ideal conditions for growing premium Pinot Noir. Picked in late September and early October, each lot was kept separate throughout fermentation and aging to preserve the unique flavors and characteristics of the wine. The wine was aged in oak barrels for 9 months, resulting in a classic, medium-bodied Pinot Noir with delicate and complex flavors that give way to a bright finish.
