    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2010 growing season had a mild spring and summer with warm weather coming in the early fall to bring the grapes to full ripeness. The fruit was harvested over the course of several weeks in late September/early October as each vineyard block attained its maximum flavor and ripeness. After fermentation, the young wine was pressed and settled before being placed in barrels for aging. The resulting wine has rich mouthfeel, as well as powerful aromatics and fruit flavor s. Delicious now, this Cabernet will continue to develop and improve for at least a decade.
    The intense and elegant flavors of the 2010 Jack London Cabernet Sauvignon complement a variety of hearty entrées, including roast beef and lamb.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Kenwood produced the first Jack London Cabernet in 1976 from a site originally planted in 1860; it had been terraced and expanded by writer Jack London, who purchased the land in the early 20th century, the vines reestablished by his descendant, Milo Shepard, the 1970s. The 2010s from this vineyard - including the Zin and the Merlot - are exceptional, with this Cabernet putting on the best performance in years. It has the scent of roses and the bright red fruit of wild berries, with equal freshness in the tannins that seems to hold the wine's potential energy in store. Plump and harmonious, layered with tannic spice, this is a wine to decant now with grilled lamb chops or cellar; at the price, it's well worth investing in a case.

    I thought this wine was a fantastic value, a full 4 stars for $20. Much enjoyed it, would buy more if you had any.

    This was a bit hard on the tannins at first but was brilliant after a couple of hours to breath. Very full bodied and full of earthy flavors.

    This will be very good in several more years. At the moment it is still very tight and tannic...though drinkable if you want a really "old style" California cab reminiscent of the 70's.

    Bland, little fruit taste, almost absent nose, high acid finish. I was not impressed
