Kenwood Russian River Pinot Noir 2013


With Thanksgiving around the corner, Pinot Noir is on our mind and we picked up a bottle of the 2013 Kenwood Vineyards Russian River Valley Pinot Noir for $11.99 at Trader Joe’s.

This wine does not drink like a $11.99 Pinot Noir which is a nice surprise. It’s a little thin but very smooth. It opens up with lots of cherry-cranberry, in the mouth, you receive a boost of floral flavors with a finish of peppery/spice.

According to the bottle:

“The cool  Russian River Valley of Sonoma County provides perfect growing conditions for our Pinot Noir. Aged in French oak barrels, the wine exhibits delicate fruit floral aromas, wild berry flavors and a smooth finish, Find food pairing suggestions for this wine at”

About Kenwood Vineyards:

Kenwood Vineyards was established in the 1970s in the very heart of Sonoma, where together with a handful of wineries, we started premium winemaking in this region, long before the region’s AVAs were even created.

As one of California’s premium wine pioneers, we now benefit from a strong heritage and pedigree. We initiated our passion in an original Sonoma barn building that dates back to 1906 where we have remained since . We stay true to our historical past by producing wines from each vineyard separately, as we did 46 vintages ago. We have been crafting the iconic Jack London single vineyard wines for nearly 40 years, and as we look towards the future, we craft new premium wines and invest in our home and our vineyards. Our new ranges are pure expressions of the rich and diverse terroir of Sonoma.
