Kathryn Kennedy 'South Slope Collection'
Santa Cruz Mountains, California

This ultrarare, ultrapremium collection consists of six single varietal (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) wines from six single vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains and produced by our longtime friend, local rockstar and master grower/winemaker Marty Mathis. 

Only 80 of these boxes were produced. The vineyards included are not usually bottled separately, but are incorporated into Marty's stellar Small Lot Cabernet.

Included in this set are:

  • Bates Ranch
  • Black Ridge
  • Martin Ranch
  • Therese's Vineyard
  • Sophia Rae Vineyard
  • Mohini's Vineyard

Winemaker notes: "The concept for this boxed set case out of the superlative quality of the 2016 vintage; recognized as outstanding across all areas for Cabernet Sauvignon. Right from the start (in the fermentors in fact) I knew something special was within our grasp. In an average season some vineyard sites don't reach their highest potential while others can shine. In 2016 every location gave top level Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. So drawing fro the component parts that would normally make up a Small Lot Cabernet blend, I selected these six individual vineyard sites to share with you. The goal was to get a taste survey from a long swath of the warmer districts of the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA. These sites are arranged in this box in an order from South to North and cover locations from Redwood Retreat Road in the South all the way to the hills around Saratoga. Coincidentally all the blocks that we harvested from had various forms of a sunny South facing slope thus the name for the project. These wines were fermented and barrel aged in similar fashion so as to allow the specific character of the sites to express through in the glass. Employing fourteen days of skin contact with hand punch-down; these wines were aged in three year old French and American oak barrels. Single sixty gallon barrels were held in reserve from each vineyard, however only 120 bottles were made from each. Vineyard desgnation names were used with permission of the owners." ~ Marty Mathis

Set contains six 750mL bottles. Bottles will not be sold individually.
