Hundred Acre Vineyard Wraith Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

$599.99

              Limited new release from Hundred Acre.  One of the top-scoring Cabs of the vintage. Wraith is a blend of hand-selected barrels of 2013 ARK (100 points), Kayli Morgan (100 points) and Far Between Cabernet Sauvignon (100 points). 100 Points Robert Parker: "Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Wraith leaps from the glass with gregarious black and red cherries, mulberries, black currant cordial, red roses and lavender scents with layers of crushed rocks and earthy sparks. Faint earth and exotic spice nuances unfurl slowly, growing in intensity and depth. The palate is full-bodied and solidly structured with firm, very finely grained, super ripe tannins and bold freshness. Finishing exquisitely perfumed, jaw-droppingly layered and with bags of sophistication and poise, this wine totally resets the benchmark for 100 points... ..Visiting with Hundred Acre’s contrarian proprietor, the bigger-than-life, outspoken and suffers-no-fools Jayson Woodbridge, is always a highlight. First of all, and most importantly, is his commitment to producing great wines. At the same time, he is turning out attractive, consumer-friendly Pinot Noirs. Then there are his inexpensive Layer Cake wines, showing that his portfolio covers the values as well. But what follows is a look at his top-of-the-line wines from the 15-acre Kayli Morgan Vineyard east of St. Helena, his 15-acre Howell Mountain Ark Vineyard and a spectacular site adjacent to the Eisele Vineyard south of Calistoga called Few and Far Between. His first vintage was the 2000 Kayli Morgan. At that time he was using consultant Philippe Melka, but he has been on his own for a number of years and the wine quality continues to be among the most singular and profound in all of Napa Valley. His outspoken personality doesn’t often sit well in conservative and quiet Napa, but he only needs to let his wines do the talking. Little else needs to be said or done." outh."

The texture and mouthfeel of this wine was outstanding. On opening it was pretty high tone and alcohol was noticeable. After an hour of air this opened up!

Dark nose. Cooked stewed black cherries. Soft and velvety tannins. Incredible balance elegance. Coffee and tobacco on the back end. Jayson nailed this one!

When you ask for a big cab, this is the expectation and it delivered. It was almost too powerful? The wine was appreciated but pushed me back to wanting more Kali instead, to have with the meal.

Insanely good. Killer nose and one of the biggest CA cabs I’ve ever had.
