Kathryn Kennedy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Cruz Mountains|
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. We are very proud to announce that in the fall of 2007 our Estate Vineyard was certified Organic by the CCOF.
Exhibits a firm core of cedar, currant, spice and licorice, offering a classy, Bordeaux-like expression of structure, grace and refinement. Clean on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 600 cases made.
