Hundred Acre Vineyard Wraith Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

$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 2014 ARK (100 points), Kayli Morgan (100 points) and Far Between Cabernet Sauvignon (100 points). Robert Parker: "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."

I was fortunate enough to attend the grand tasting at TexSom this year. Talk about a Who’s Who of the wine world! Incredible environment with beautiful wines. My first time trying their Wraith offering. The rating must be taken with a grain of salt knowing they are fairly small pours (though I definitely went back for more) but this is Hundred Acre epitomized. Deep, brooding, full on chocolate, blueberry pie, sandalwood and hedonistic. Love it or hate it style. Darker and more complex than the Kayli Morgan it was poured alongside.

Plum, blackberry and a little sage. Still young but super approachable.
