Hundred Acre's vineyards are prime Napa Valley terroirs, selected by former vineyard manager Jim Barbour who deemed them 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 vineyards are spared hot afternoon sunlight and the soils absorb water slowly to keep the vines cool. The results are outstanding.

"A perfect wine, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard (1,300 - 1,400 cases) from Howell Mountain is one of the great efforts from this high elevation terroir. It offers notes of burning embers, black raspberries, blueberries and flowers, a full-bodied opulence, wonderful intensity, but the wine is not weighty or overripe. Fleshy and voluptuous with terrific floral notes…They are not easy to secure unless you are on Hundred Acre’s mailing list, but they are truly profound offerings.

"…these wines are characterized by extraordinarily silky tannins, and an opulence and voluptuous texture that are irresistible. Moreover, they are capable of lasting for two decades in top vintages, such as 2007 and 2008. All the 2007s are living up to the high promise of this stunningly opulent, showy, complex vintage." Robert Parker

"One of California’s (perhaps the world’s) most flamboyant, talented, contrarian wine producers is Napa Valley’s.” Jayson Woodbridge
