Hundred Acre Vineyard's Kayli Morgan 2013 vintage was rated a perfect 100 points by Robert Parker.

Hundred Acre's Kayli Morgan Vineyard is a prime Napa Valley plot, selected by former vineyard manager Jim Barbour who thought it ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon. He has been proved right. Since then, the current owner, Jayson Woodbridge, brought in consulting winemaker Philippe Melka, who told him that the soil resembled that of Château Pétrus (of Bordeaux's Pomerol). The vineyard is spared hot afternoon sunlight and its soils absorb water slowly to keep the vines cool. The results are outstanding.

"...extraordinary fragrance of white flowers, crème de cassis, blackberry and graphite. Totally opulent, I always thought the wine tasted more like the great Pomerols, which are made mostly from Merlot, versus Woodbridge’s 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. But this vineyard has a lot of clay in it that seems to provide a silkiness to the tannins. This is a beautifully balanced, full-throttle and highly extracted wine with no hard edges and a finish of a good 45-50 seconds.

"...the wine quality continues to be among the most singular and profound in all of Napa Valleys." Robert Parker
