Winemaker's Notes:

2005 Hundred Acre Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan 96-99ptsRP "...looks to be the finest Cabernet Sauvignon Jayson Woodbridge has yet produced. Like all of his Cabernet Sauvignons, this wine is a breathtaking example of plush, layered, complex Cabernet Sauvignon. A total thrill, this wine has absolutely awesome aromatics of crme de cassis, cedar, sweet cherries, spice box, as well as licorice and graphite. unbelievable unctuosity and opulence la Pomerols Le Pinleads into a full-bodied, concentrated, exceptionally pure wine.a total delight to smell, contemplate, sip.can be drunk young or cellared for 20+ years."

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

Good ruby-red. Currant, raspberry, licorice, violet, mint and minerals on the nose. Dense and sexy on the palate, with the minerality leavening the wine's almost confectionery sweetness. This is impressively broad and deep for the first vintage from ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

The three vintages of Cabernet Sauvignon Deep Time include the just bottled 2005, which spent four years in an assortment of barrels. It was the best tasting I have had of that wine. These wines have a more chocolate, espresso roast character as well as tons of fruit, and a natural, concentrated character. They are very thick and rich, yet the oak seems less noticeable than it does in wines scheduled for earlier bottling. Altogether, this is a remarkable winery with a highly personalized vision that is producing extraordinary wines, and we re all the better for it.

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... Robert Parker.

Coming from the Kayli Morgan vineyard at the base of Mt. Harlan, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is complex yet focused. Notes of crème de cassis, cedar, sweet cherries, spice box, as well as licorice and graphite explode from the glass. This rare wine can be enjoyed now, or aged for up to 20 years.

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.
