Kathryn Kennedy's stature in the Santa Cruz Mountains enables the producer to have access to the best fruit from the finest small vineyards in the appellation. These growers even include residential homeowners whose grapes arrive at the crush pad in very small lots. Limited in production, the Small Lot Cabernet is vinified using the same small-scale techniques employed for Kathryn Kennedy's estate wine. Aged in a combination of French and American oak, this wine shows classic Santa Cruz Mountains brambly black fruits with woodsy spice and distinct mineral notes on a balanced, supple palate.
