100 Acre




"From meticulous harvesting berry by berry rather than grape bunch by grape bunch, to an obsessive/compulsive barrel regime as well as winemaking, Hundred Acre is the Napa outpost of visionary and a genius – Jayson Woodbridge." -- Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate








2009 Hundred Acre Vineyard Ark ...
$795 / 3 bottle case in wood box
"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard is intense. Dark red fruit, flowers, mint, licorice and exotic spices are some of the many notes that flow from this fabulous, textured Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2009 is a huge wine with a bright, bright future. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. 

Proprietor Jayson Woodbridge makes some of the most unique, deeply personal wines in Napa Valley....so the wines bear very specific signatures that are unlike those of other wines being made in the Valley....Woodbridge believes wines must be ready to go upon release and frowns upon decanting or advance aeration, which he doesn’t think should be necessary. As outstanding as these wines can be upon release, the reality is that the wines have also proven to age exceptionally well....The transformation of these wines in bottle is remarkable. These no-holds-barred Cabernets aren’t for everyone, but they are compelling and highly individualistic, just like Woodbridge himself."

Rated 95-97/100 The Wine Advocate
