Ripe and complex with aromas of red currents, figs and dried cherries with a hint of spice; a full-bodied wine with a rich mouth feel, elegant tannins and an excellent finish.
Since 1976, Kenwood Vineyards has been granted the exclusive rights to produce and market wines from Jack London's historic vineyard in Glen Ellen. This unique red lava soil vineyard, located on the eastern slope of Sonoma Mountain, was first planted in the late 1800’s. It has always produced red wines distinct in depth and varietal character. The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon fruit was harvested in late September and early October, after a long and temperate growing season followed by a warm Fall. The extra time the grapes hung on the vine gave the resulting wine great depth and complexity. Following fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for two years. The resulting wine is rich with powerful spicy and fruit flavors. Delicious now, this Cabernet will continue to develop and improve for at least a decade.
FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS: The intense and elegant flavors of the 2004 Jack London Cabernet Sauvignon complement a variety of hearty entrées, including steak, lamb and roasted meats.
