Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

As the preferred wine of the Kentucky Derby®, Kendall-Jackson is proud to offer this commemorative bottling of Cabernet Sauvignon. This limited release wine is aged in small oak barrels, creating a textured palate with notes of cigar box and baking spice, accompanied by hints of black currant and dark cherry.

Cheers to the 150th Run for the Roses!

Winemaking

Cabernet Sauvignon lots are blended with Merlot for softness and roundness and Cabernet Franc for tannins and enhanced mouthfeel. Our Sonoma County vineyards impart blackberry, mocha flavors and silky mid-palate.  Artisan winemaking techniques, such as cold soaking and extending maceration were used to enhance and simultaneously soften the tannins, deepen the color and intensify the flavors.

AGING: 23 months in 74% French oak (20% new) 26% American oak (7% new)
