1996 Kenwood "Artist Series" Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #992092 93 points Wine Spectator

 Spicy, floral and perfumed Cabernet, a late-release from the '96 vintage, showing off earthy, cedary black cherry and blackberry flavors, and pretty, toast- and vanilla-scented notes. Unusually supple and polished version of this wine. *Highly Recommended* (JL)  (12/2000)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Weighty and supple, this continues the strong mid-90s run with its dark fruit, toast and herb nose. There’s a touch of sweet sur-maturité (overripeness) here, but there’s tangy acidity, too, to keep it together. It’s deep and sweet, with blackberry, chocolate and herb flavors and a lengthy, smooth black pepper and anise-tinged finish.  (4/2002)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Artist Series reveals rugged tannin in addition to medium to full body, an earthy rusticity, and dark fruits intermixed with foresty/underbrush notes. (RP)  (6/2002)

K&L Notes

Every vintage since 1975, Kenwood has released a singular Cabernet Sauvignon produced from top vineyards in Sonoma County with a unique label designed by an esteemed artist. The artistry and the wine within together capture a particular moment in time and terroir that can never be duplicated. The "Artist Series" is always a rich and concentrated Cabernet true to the vintage, and each bottling becomes a vintage collectible both because of the age-worthy wine in the bottle and the one-and-only artistic label outside the bottle.
