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.
This vineyard is long recognized for its prized red wines and its Zinfandel is no exception. Since our first vintage in 1987, the Jack London Zinfandel has produced flavorful wines with excellent fruit and well-rounded tannins. 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 outstanding, very distinctive Zinfandel.
Ripe aromas of boysenberries, plum and purple guava combine with aromatic spicy notes of cinnamon cocoa nibs and white pepper. Rich, well-structured tannins provide an elegant mouthfeel and a long finish.
