Kenzo Estate 2016 rindo Napa Valley red wine Heidi Barrett winemaker

紫は高貴なものを示す色。ここでは上質な葡萄を象徴します。鈴は鈴なり。つまり、紫鈴とは、上質な葡萄が畑一面に実るケンゾー エステイトそのものを表す、フラッグシップワインの名に相応しい言葉です。それは藍紫色の釣鐘を吊るす可憐な竜胆の花にも似て、しなやかでたおやかな魅力を秘めています。

2005 Vintage Notes

Record-setting precipitation late into the growing season delayed bloom and set. The summer months were cool and pleasant with few heat spikes. Fog and cool temperatures were a concern heading into September but nearly perfect conditions arrived with an Indian Summer making for a later than average harvest, extended hang time, excellent sugar development and balanced acids. It was a larger than average crop of what was considered a signature Napa Valley vintage.
