Kathryn Kennedy Winery Santa Cruz Mountains
The late Kathryn Kennedy took up winemaking at her small 3 ha (8 acre) property in her 40s. The Estate Cabernet is highly sought after by local collectors and the most likely way of obtaining any at all is to join the mailing list. A secondary label, Small Lot, is also produced, again in very small quantities, from selected Cabernet plots throughout the Santa Cruz AVA. A sparkling wine Cuvée Twenty Seven is also now made from the Burgundy varieties. A part barrel, part tank-fermented coolclimate Sauvignon Blanc was added with the 2003 vintage. Vinification for the reds is in small lots and the approach throughout is one of care and minimal handling. The Cabernets, particularly the Estate, will comfortably add great complexity with 10 years’ age. (DM)
