Wine Review: Kenwood Pinot Noir 2006

Wine Review: Kenwood Pinot Noir 2006 - $21

It’s back. The Kenwood Pinot Noir from California’s Russian River Valley is one of my favorites, but I wasn’t able to find it the past couple of years. On Sunday, I picked up a bottle of the 2006 and popped it open that night. I tried this wine for a first time about four years ago at a company party and was immediately stricken by its harmony of flavor. The 2006 lives up to previous editions, with a tinge of oak melding perfectly with well-structured dark-cherry flavors. If you can find it, grab a case. It’s the kind of wine you can give as a gift and be reasonably sure the recipient will love it.
