Hundred Acre is a Napa cult winery based in Rutherford in California. The wines are produced by Jayson Woodbridge with winemaker Philippe Melka. These highly sought-after wines are available through the winery’s (extensive) mailing list, with precious few of these small production wines via retail and auction. With prices starting well into the hundred dollar range, the winery specializes in 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with names like Precious and Deep Time. More recently, they began producing a Zinfandel (Dark Matter) and the Gold, an unoaked blend of Chardonnay, Viognier and Gewürztraminer that contains tiny gold flecks in the bottle. Woodbridge is also involved in the far more accessible Layer Cake brand.  Read less

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard (approximately 1,000 cases produced) is exquisite, performing even better this year than it did last. A beautiful bouquet of licorice, smoke, burning embers, creme de cassis, sweet black cherries, and spice box soars from the glass of this 2005. Unctuous, flamboyant, and incredibly pure, it is a superb Cabernet Sauvignon that is already strutting its remarkable potential. It can be drunk now or cellared for 15andndash;20 years.

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard (the debut vintage of this cuvandeacute;e) reveals an inky/blue/purple color as well as a sumptuous nose of loamy soil, licorice, graphite, espresso, sweet blackberries, and forest floor. It is a gorgeously proportioned, full-bodied effort with plenty of minerality as well as definition. Already accessible, this big wine should evolve for two decades.

Bright, full ruby. Enticing aromas of black raspberry, licorice and melted chocolate. Sweet, lush and superripe; in fact, this is downright massive, with an almost porty, lower-toned quality perked up by complex mineral and red licorice elements. Wonderfully fat, sweet wine with extravagant chocolate, mocha and nutty oak tones. Finishes with rich, broad tannins and a wave of chocolatey dark fruits. This is the first release from Jayson Woodbridge’s home vineyard, which features nine separate blocks of vines and six clones, and which was picked in multiple passes and fermented in 500-liter puncheons.

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan looks to be the finest Cabernet Sauvignon Jayson Woodbridge has yet produced, and has put on weight and complexity since I tasted it last year. Like all of his Cabernet Sauvignons, this wine is fermented in wood puncheons or demi-muids, and is a breathtaking example of plush, layered, complex Cabernet Sauvignon. A total thrill, this wine has absolutely awesome aromatics of creme de cassis, cedar, sweet cherries, spice box, as well as licorice and graphite. A caramelized sweetness to the fruit, loads of glycerin, unbelievable unctuosity and opulence a la Pomerolandrsquo;s Le Pin or some of the legendary vintages of right bank Bordeaux leads into a full-bodied, concentrated, exceptionally pure wine that is a total delight to smell, contemplate, sip, and in my case, spit out. This is a wine that can be drunk young or cellared for 20+ years.

Offers delicious pure, ripe and fleshy Cabernet fruit, delivering layers of currant, wild berry and a hint of raspberry, with mineral, pebble and cedary oak, all of which unfolds gracefully, with a supple, caressing texture. Best from 2010 through 2017.

Graceful, ripe and fleshy, with supple plum, blackberry, black cherry and wild berry fruit that reminds me of a berry pie. Unfolds to reveal subtle spicy, cedary oak flavors, and the finish is long and luxurious, with layers of berry flavors.
