Sometimes real treats show up in the endless parade of wine samples. In addition to their current releases, the folks at @kathrynkennedywinery sent along this library release, and…. Wow. This wine is aging beautifully. Gorgeous texture with fantastic cherry, cedar, and forest floor notes shot through with a smoked meat umami character that is positively mouthwatering. I brought this over to a dedicated Bordeaux lover’s house for dinner, and he said it was the best CA wine he’d ever had. ⁣

Kathryn Kennedy Winery Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2006: Medium-full bodied. Incredible balance. Soft integrated tannins. Black & blue fruits. Plum. Tobacco. Leather. Oak. Earth. Long elegant finish. For me, a beautifully crafted Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet. Cheers🍷

Black currants, blueberries, earth, and eucalyptus. Incredible balance and elegance with an extended long finish. This is a nice, elegant California cab and worth seeking out.
