2006 Hundred Acre Kayli Morgan Cabernet - 99 Pts!
In a vintage that tended to produce more rustic tannins as well as more structured masculine wines the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard has turned out brilliantly. Like its siblings it exhibits a deep ruby/purple color low acidity incredibly sweet ripe tannins and notes of melted chocolate kirsch liqueur and a hint of cassis. Opulent intense and full-bodied with fabulous fruit purity and depth this is a tour de force in winemaking. It is unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage. It will drink well for 15+ years.

Rating 99 RP - 2006 Hundred Acre Kayli Morgan Cabernet - 99 Pts! In a vintage that tended to produce more rustic tannins as well as more structured masculine wines the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard has turned out brilliantly.

Opulent intense and full-bodied with fabulous fruit purity and depth this is a tour de force in winemaking. It is unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage. It will drink well for 15+ years. One of California's perhaps the world's most flamboyant talented contrarian wine producers is Napa Valley's Jayson Woodbridge the owner of Hundred Acre winery. Woodbridge has been running in high gear since his debut 2000. His 100% Cabernet Sauvignons are made primarily by him with some consulting advice from Philippe Melka. His first effort was from his home vineyard Kayli Morgan which is situated east of St. Helena. That offering was followed by a Cabernet from the 15 acre Ark Vineyard on Howell Mountain. Woodbridge recently purchased a tiny well-situated hillside parcel above the Eisele Vineyard southeast of Calistoga. His special projects include the Cabernet Sauvignon Precious in issue #174 I mistakenly called it "Previous" a wine harvested grape by grape rather than bunch by bunch and his Cabernet Sauvignon Deep Time which sees extended oak aging 36-42 months. All things considered this is an extraordinary group of wines. They are not easy to secure unless you are on Hundred Acre's mailing list but they are truly profound offerings that showcase a variety of Napa Valley terroirs as well as different harvesting and barrel aging techniques. The newest enterprise is the Dark Matter Zinfandel a Zinfandel that is pushed to the limits of ripeness from the high elevations of Howell Mountain. The most common characteristic among all of the Hundred Acre Cabernet Sauvignons is their incredibly opulent creamy textures. That character vindicates Woodbridge's harvesting decisions as he seems to achieve extraordinarily sweet noble tannins in all of his wines. There are approximately 250 cases of Jayson Woodbridge's special projects including the Precious and Deep Time cuvees. RP
