Winemaker's Notes

This seamless, sexy, opulent 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan resembles a Merlot-based Pomerol more than a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Jayson Woodbridge's brilliant effort exhibits abundant notes of plums, kirsch, black currants, licorice, incense and subtle smoky oak. With fabulous fruit, a seductive, seamless, almost haute couture personality, excellent purity and texture as well as a multidimensional style, it is in a magical place at age ten where it should continue to remain for another 10-15 years.

"Full red-ruby. Fragrant, nuanced nose combines redcurrant, raspberry, plum, tobacco, mocha and baking spices. Sweet and velvety but with succulent acids giving the wine terrific vinosity. Wonderfully sweet, structured and long, and highly aromatic on the aftertaste. The extra time in barrel has burned off some of the wine's baby fat and revealed its spine of acids and tannins. If the extra year of barrel aging can be said to mimic the effect of several years of bottle aging, the Hundred Acre wine from the clay-rich Kayli Morgan Vineyard should prove to be long-lived."

"Lots to admire in this dense, ripe, rich and concentrated youngster, with a smoky, creamy core of mocha-, plum- and blackberry-laced fruit, pencil lead and cedar notes. There's also a mix of earth, leather and spice aromatics giving extra dimension. Finishes with a long, complex aftertaste and firm and chewy tannins, boding well for the future. Best from 2005 through 2012. 1,900 cases made."

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
