2000 Kenwood Artist Series

Guest Blogger Kevin back once again. I am trying to
prove I am the worst guest blogger ever since I have totaled 1 post in almost
as many months while having blog responsibilities. I’ll try to rid myself of
that moniker starting today with a review of the delightful 2000 Kenwood
Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma County.
This was the 26th edition in the Artist’s Series and we picked it up at the
winery in 2005. The grapes were grown on the Mayacamas mountain range along Sonoma Valley.

Aged in small oak barrels
as well as the bottle until we drank it along side rib eye steaks. The deep red color of the wine and the peppery
aroma caused me to have great hopes of recovering from our misguided WBW a few
weeks ago. The steaks were rubbed with pepper, salt and garlic. Sadly, this
ended up clashing with the cherry and fruity flavor of the wine. So, we
finished dinner, then drank the rest of the wine! It wasn’t the original plan,
but it ended up working out quite well. The finish was representative of the
French Oak aging leaving a short, crisp and relaxed flavor. 

Overall, we both enjoyed dinner, we both enjoyed
the wine, but we are still 0 for 2 when attempting to combine the two together.

Final Wine Ranking:
