Kathryn Kennedy Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Cruz Mountains Small Lot 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Our knowledge of the Santa Cruz Mountains allowed us to access grapes from superior small vineyards. These growers include residential homeowner who’s grapes arrive at the crush pad in very small lots. Warmer growing conditions on the inland side of the coast range have proven to yield superb Cabernet.

The Kathryn Kennedy estate vineyard is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vines cover gentle slopes in Saratoga, California on the inland side of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Eight acres of vines were planted on their own roots by Kathryn in 1973. Excellent soil, a climate possessing just the right amount of marine influence and personal attention combine to yield outstanding grapes. Each vintage is grown by hand and vinified in small lots followed by gentle barrel aging with 90% French oak. The result is big full-flavored wine with deep color and a decade or more of aging potential. Kathryn planted the vineyard in 1973 after attending viticulture courses at UC Davis. The decision to specialize in one variety was based on advice she received there. It was also suggested that she consult old-timers in her local area. This resulted in a strong recommendation for Cabernet Sauvignon. Kathryn planted her entire eight acres exclusively to Cabernet Sauvignon. Kathryn's youngest son, Marty Mathis, took the position as winemaker in 1981. Marty and his wife Dr. Deborah Mathis currently reside at the vineyard and winery. Read less
