    Winemaker's Notes:

    Author Jack London once wrote of Sonoma County, "The air is wine. Across Sonoma Mountain, wisps of sea fog are stealing. The afternoon sun smolders in the drowsy sky. I have everything to make me glad I am alive."

    This patch of earth that so captivated Mr. London is home to Kenwood Vineyards. Kenwood plants, farms and harvests the historical, lava-terraced vineyards of Jack London's ranch, producing Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Merlot wines. Made only from Jack London vineyard grapes, these three wines are savored for their mint-accented berry flavors and smooth finishes. The dramatic Jack London label -- a replica of the wolf's head Jack London used as his book-plate logo -- has created tremendous consumer interest and recognition in the wines.

    Intense aroma of boysenberry accented by hints of white pepper, rich viscous body with flavors of dried cherries and a long excellent finish. Long recognized for its superior red wines, the first Zinfandel was produced from the Jack London Vineyard in 1988. Located on Sonoma Mountain with a southeasterly exposure, the climatic conditions and long, cool growing season of this viticultural area create complexity and balance in the fruit. The influence of the vineyard's red volcanic soil and the fruity characteristics of the grapes combine to produce an excellent, very distinctive Zinfandel.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This Zin shows classic Sonoma County character, but it’s also a tannic, young wine that wants a little time in the bottle. Tasted at the age of two, it’s jammy, with pepper-infused blackberry and mulberry flavors and a gamey touch of smoked beef. Give it until mid-2009, when it will be fantastic with grilled beef.

    Smooth, but with a big finish. Holds up well with aged cheese. Drinks well alone, but not as earthy as I was hoping for. Nonetheless, outstanding for the price.

    I expected a Zin with more fruit-forwardness, more zingy flavor. It was okay, but disappointing for the rating; I'd give it an 86.

    didn't have the flavors of a zinfandel, but wine but perhaps better with time.
