{ }  37 Ricard in May 2014. Kenwood has benefitted tremendously from Pernod Ricard Winemakers' investment in winery equipment and oak regime. Kenwood will also be rolling out a new and contem- porary look to their labels and packaging. All of these changes "will show a much more contemporary and energetic side to Kenwood," according to Henderson. The core of Pernod Ricard's redevelopment and improvement at Kenwood comes down to the juice in the bottle. It is here that Pernod Ricard trusts the artful skills of the Kenwood Vineyards winemaking team. Pat Henderson appreciates this non-intrusive approach. "They're leaving us to focus on what we love most— making great wines. And with their support, we have even more opportunity to share what makes Sonoma so special across the country and hopefully around the world." Kenwood's signature Sonoma series sports new packaging. Kenwood's new Six Ridges series, rolling out in January and February, will be limited in quantity and produced in a reserve style.
