LATERAL has earned a cult following for being quite simply the finest Bordeaux-style blend at its price point. 


“Maybe it was just the very cool 2011 season or maybe the higher portion of Cab Franc but here we have a lighter “Claret Style” that is very elegant, delicious and super food friendly.  Try it today!

- Marty Mathis

For Marty Mathis, veteran winemaker at Kathryn Kennedy Winery, Lateral has been a continual pursuit of quality.  Over twenty years ago, with the fine wines of St. Emillion Bordeaux as his inspiration, Mathis set
out to create a balanced, luxurious blend from the finest grapes he could access.  This pursuit has never wavered, leading him finally to select Napa Valley sources, including top level vineyards such
as Robert Sinskey, Yount Mill and Pat Garvey.
