Description

A gem, created out of unwavering passion in the pursuit of perfection

Selected from the most significant barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon and enhanced by additional Bordeaux components, this wine is the boldest expression of the estate’s potential and power. Named “Indigo” for a color whose significance is profound in Japanese culture, this is a Cabernet Sauvignon of mighty stature the varietal is renowned for. Ai is crafted by selecting fruit from the most significant barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon and enhanced by minor yet critical additions of the other Bordeaux red varieties. Ai bears the hallmark of classic Napa Cabernet; graceful and powerful on the palate, while granted the subtleties of a wine grown at high elevation in the southern part of the valley.

 

Estate

The wines of Kenzo Estate are the culmination of Kenzo Tsujimoto’s search for the finest plantable land in the Napa Valley. His quest led him to an untamed mountain valley on the flanks of Mt. George, in Napa’s southeast corner. Of the 3,800 acres that he purchased in the late 80’s, only the best 4% have been planted to vines by famed viticulturist, David Abreu. Each autumn, the grape crop is delivered to the meticulously appointed winery, which was constructed of natural wood and stone in 2009. Set into the landscape next to aging caves dug deep into the cool mountain rock, it is here that celebrated winemaker, Heidi Barrett, crafts wines of intensity, finesse and focus.
