Kenwood Jack London Vineyard 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon. From Jack London's Sonoma Valley ranch in Glen Ellen, California. Purchased at Log Cabin Package Store in Farmington, CT.
I normally don't buy $40 bottles of wine, but I wanted this bottle because of the gravitas and the emblem, which is from a bookplate on one of London's books. A passage of London lavishly describing the vineyard is on the back.
The wine itself is pretty good, and worth the money. That's another reason I bought it, to see how a more expensive wine tastes. It's mellower, richer, and a little sweeter than most younger, less expensive wines. It's not a great enough difference to make paying more a habit, though.
