High quality factors such as prime location, vineyard management/hand-tended vines, low yields rigorous fruit selection, a state of the art winery, a competent winemaker with the latest winemaking tools/equipment and the best quality French oak barrels all come at enormous costs. In truth, it is difficult to produce a superlative, knock out bottle of wine every vintage . . . but we try.
At Kenefick Ranch, the wine-making begins in the vineyard and is completed in the cellar – our philosophy places equal emphasis on both. We use native yeasts, hand-crafted techniques and new French Oak integration to produce new world wines with soft tannins and a naturally higher acidity. “Our philosophy is to achieve perfect equilibrium, offering approachability at an early age, but with enough structure to cellar for ten to twenty years,” says winemaker Kent Jarman. Balanced and well-structured, Kenefick Ranch wines deliver, whether you drink them now or later.

Dark berry notes, nuances of anise and marzipan form the aromatics. Lush ripe jammy notes, and well integrated tannins contribute to the palate. Hints of pluot and cranberries on the finish. Good to drink now and will cellar well for the next 10-15 years.
Beautiful wine with both melon, citrus and hints of peach - all with a crisp palate.
Vibrancy and intensity are two words to describe the aromatics on this wine. This continues as you take a sip.
Beautiful wine with elements of red fruits and dark chocolate. Well balanced.
Blackberry, raspberry, vanilla bean, dark cherry enveloped with velvety tannins equals an amazing wine to be enjoyed now or cellared for another time.
The low yielding Clone 6 block is intense in color, structure, and complexity. The Clone 15 sets the fresh berry tones for the blend. These together make this an incredible wine. Flashed in new oak and some extended aging, this is a great wine to cellar for a bit. Integrated oak with the fine tannin structure allow for an excellent mid palate and long finish.
