*2006 Hundred Acre Kayli Morgan Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Hundred Acre Kayli Morgan Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA 2006
Deep garnet in color, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard jumps out of the glass with red and black cherry preserves, warm cassis and blackberry tart with hints of lilacs, rose hip tea and lamb dripping with rosemary and baking spices. Full-bodied, concentrated and wonderfully layered, it has a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and mineral laced. (RP)
The 9 acre Kayli Morgan vineyard, situated at the base of Howell Mountain, is planted exclusively to Cabernet Sauvignon and has been the foundation of Hundred Acre’s wines since their debut in 2000. Woodbridge is fastidious in both vineyard and winery, with the wines harvested grape by grape rather than bunch by bunch before further hand sorting to eliminate anything that is not deemed perfect. Aged in new French oak or varying sizes, with the 500l puncheon being the preferred vessel for the long ageing regimes employed, typically 2.5 to 3 years.
