Winemaker Notes

All Hundred Acre wines are made by sorting the fruit berry by berry, fermenting in small French oak fermenters, and long aging in the finest barriques. The secret to Hundred Acre is no compromise and no detail overlooked, ever.

The 2015 vintage will forever be defined as the height of the drought in Napa Valley. The vines were under tremendous stress with a warm, long growing season and very limited access to water. These drought conditions led to small berries, tight clusters and tremendous concentration. Unfortunately, these conditions also led to significantly lower yields than the 2014 vintage.

The single estate vineyard ARK is located just out side St. Helena, California at the base of Howell Mountain. It was originally planted in the 1880s, but was sadly lost to Prohibition. It took Hundred Acres five years to rebuild, and is their pride and joy.

Critical Acclaim

RP100
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard is a total rockstar even at this incredibly youthful stage, strutting the stage with flamboyant freshly crushed red and black currants, black cherries, black raspberries and cassis scents with spectacular lilacs and fragrant earth accents plus sparks of cast iron pan, garrigue and grilled meats. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is charged with amazing energy, packing wonderfully vibrant black fruits, red berries and mineral flavors into a firm, finely grained frame, finishing very long and beautifully lifted.
