2005 Hundred Acre - Cabernet Sauvignon The Ark Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon - USA - California - Napa - Napa Valley - Red

Red Cabernet Sauvignon
Producer Notes

In 1998 Jayson Woodbridge released his first vintage, one Cabernet, made from his own 10-acre Kayli Morgan Vineyard. The goal was to create a "Right Bank" style Cabernet from those clay soils. With the second vintage, he earned scores in the mid-90s and sold the wine for double the previous vintage.

Issue Issue 138

($250; bottled in January; 15.2% alcohol) 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.

Drink Dates 2008-2028

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard (the debut vintage of this cuvee) 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.

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.

Amazing wine! Berries on the nose, but notes of cassis, blackberry, and graphite pencil when tasting. Incredible finish, and only then do the tannins become apparent. A classic wine that will be even better in 5 years.

Deep dark ruby red, a really gorgeous wine, nose of berries and cassis, soft integrated tannins, a wonderful wine to be enjoyed with someone you love, drink in your lifetime.

Ruby red with faint edges. Nose of vanilla, black fruits. Body filled with cassis, raspberry, toasted oak, and silky smooth.Not as layered and rich as we remember. Perfectly balanced. Sweet tannins were part of a long finish.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
