2015 Hundred Acre 'Wraith Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Winemaker Notes: WRAITH is a trinity of Hundred Acre’s three single vineyard wines. It is a selection of barrels set aside in the cellar from those waiting to be blended someday into the single vineyard wines from Kayli Morgan, ARK or Few and Far Between. All very different and incredibly unique. The WRAITH shows all the beauty and personality of each individual vineyard and how they come together to develop even greater complexity
Robert Parker - "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Wraith has a medium garnet-purple color and a hauntingly beautiful nose of kirsch, red roses, fragrant soil and menthol over a core of blueberry compote, raspberry pie and preserved plums plus faint glimpses of crushed rocks, lavender, tapenade and smoked meats. The palate is full-bodied, tightly knit and super intense with a solid structure of perfectly ripe, fine-grained tannins and tons of freshness, finishing very long and minerally. This is one of those very rare wines that so beautifully straddles the pinnacles of hedonic and the cerebral experiences, forever compelling you to take just one more sip."
Jeb Dunnuck - "The Wraith cuvée was first added in 2013 and is a cellar selection blend from the three estate vineyards, the Ark, Few and Far Between, and Kayli Morgan. As with the other releases here, it’s 100% Cabernet Sauvignon brought up in new French oak. The beautiful 2015 is one of the spicier, more complex releases in the lineup. Loads of cassis, kirsch liqueur, toast, bouquet garni (rosemary/thyme), licorice, iron, and dried flower notes all emerge from the glass, and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a seamless texture that just about could not be better, flawless balance, and a great, great finish. A quintessential 2015 that shows the ripe, sexy style of the vintage yet still stays refined and elegant, it’s another thrilling wine from Woodbridge."
