Kinsella Estates is an organically-farmed vineyard situated in a private valley in the foothills of the western edge of Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley. Elevated 500 feet above the Russian River, the valley enjoys a warm climate that virtually never sees winter frost.
The Kinsella Estates vineyard is composed of three blocs: The Heirloom Vineyard — a steep-sloping, two acre, 17-year-old parcel, wedged in between an arroyo and a knoll of Spanish oaks — the six acre Jersey Boys Vineyard, and the four acre roadside Spencer Vineyard.
This, the Heirloom Vineyard is undoubtedly the standout star in the 2016 vintage — an absolutely stunning Cabernet Sauvignon collector’s item that is just starting to hit its stride. Look at what Jeb Dunnuck had to say about it below:
“The cream of the lineup in 2016 is the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Heirloom Vineyard, which has the most purity, balance, and length of the three releases. Coming from older vines and a terraced vineyard in Dry Creek, its deep purple color is followed by a rock star bouquet of blackberries, black cherries, graphite, chocolate, and mineral aromas and flavors. It’s deep, full-bodied, straight-up seamless, and perfectly balanced on the palate, and reminds me of a great Saint-Emilion with its dark, chocolaty fruit and obvious minerality. It’s a beautiful wine that will keep for over two decades.”

Explosive nose of blue fruits, graphite and cassis. Rich and full bodied. Blueberries, raspberries, currants and mocha on the palate. The finish is long and lush. Gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon from an exceptional vintage and winemaker. On par with any other Cabernet that Thomas Rivers Brown makes
An absolute Home-Run of a Cabernet Sauvignon
