WSI94 268 Cases produced. Opulent, yet balanced with an exceptional • multidimensional personality that evolves on the palate. Vivid notes of blackberry, blueberry, fine grained leather with undertones of tobacco leaf, African violet and dark chocolate. This wine balances acidity, gentle fine-grained tannin and a bold body in total symmetry. Approachable now, though designed to age for decades. 25 year old vines on well drained gravel soils. 100% new French Oak aged 28 months. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
OB95 Mountain’ bottling, the 2018 Kennedy Cellars ‘Oakville ‘Cabernet Sauvignon was also stored in French oak for 28 months and comes from 25 year old vines. Very inky once in the glass, this shows gorgeous aromatic range from black rose petals to creme de violette, tar, pencil lead and freshly tilled soils. The palate is very concentrated but shows a brilliant acid backbone, with very soft tannins framing everything brilliantly. Enjoy this beautiful wine in its heady youth and over the next fifteen plus years.
Tiny production, super select sourcing and delicious wines (we are getting a very good deal on pricing for this debut!).
Powerful and gracious wines – very deft use of fruit and tannin management – deeply satisfying now and with age-worthy qualities. This is definitely a producer worth following and tasting!
Kennedy Cellars is a boutique producer of limited collection hedonistic wines made the showcase Napa Valley at its finest. Each wine is vineyard and appellation designate, and hand crafted without any compromises at every step, from the vineyard to the final bottling. We endeavour to create a journey through taste and smell, leaving lasting memories with every glass and bottle.
Founded in 2018 by Johnathon Kennedy Sipos, whose passion for wine and business led him to merge the two and start a small production wine label committed to uncompromising wines above all else.
Our wine making principles are simple, do not compromise. Do not put yield per ton of grapes ahead of quality, do not rush the process of barrel aging simply to meet release dates, do not select inferior glass, labels or most importantly corks. Everything we do, we do in pursuit of our goal, crafting the finest wine Napa Valley can deliver.
