Kenzo Estate 2016 rindo Napa Valley red wine Heidi Barrett winemaker

Vineyard of Abundant Grapes – rindo, meaning purple bell or gentian flower, connects the beautiful purple hue of the grapes, that when grown abundantly resemble the shape of many bells hanging in the field. rindo is the flagship red wine of Kenzo Estate. It is the singular expression of our magnificent vineyard and is an alluring mosaic of Bordeaux varietals. Deep, delicate, smooth.

“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.”
