“At home, I like to offer my guests Kenzo Estate's rindo for its approachability and soft fruit. It is a wine that is equally delicious now as some of the older vintages I have in my cellar.” - Thomas Keller, The French Laundry & Per Se Proprietor/Chef

“An early contender for Cabernet of the vintage in this price category, the texture is ULTRA silky smooth preparing your pallate for thrills to come.  This dazzling new releases launches forth with a flashy bouquet that includes lavender, sultry dark fruit notes and fresh oak from the French barrels. Hints of baking spices and Toblerone milk chocolate on the mid palate evolve gracefully, boding well for enjoyment over the next decade. 97 points now and well on the way to 98+ points after a bit of cellar time. Bravo!” - California Wine Advisors

Background
rindo – Meaning purple bell or gentian flower, "rindo" represents the beautiful purple hue of the grape clusters, that resemble the shape of many bells hanging in the vineyard. 

As the flagship red wine in the collection, rindo is the singular expression of the estate's magnificent diverse vineyards, that grow an alluring mosaic of Bordeaux varietals. Each vintage is reflective of its growing season, and each is uniquely tuned and refined by blend. This 2017 composition is bright and approachable, with layers of dark berry and cocoa, and brandishes its pedigree with its refined finish.
