Kenwood Sonoma County 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, $12.09-$16.99, 88+ points, appeared black currant purple/red and near black at the core with a broad clear circumferential rim.
Red and black fruit dominated the aroma with hints of cedar, earth, and clove.
This is a medium bodied Cabernet displaying good acidity and rather firm tannin, but it was juicy with blackberry and boysenberry, coffee, tobacco, and oak notes added complexity.
Finished fair on the trailing palate with accelerating tannin and hints of spice and the 13.5% alcohol.
