The Winery

Hundred Acre

“From meticulous harvesting berry by berry rather than grape bunch by grape bunch, to an obsessive/compulsive barrel regime as well as winemaking, Hundred Acre is the Napa outpost of visionary and a genius”
– Jayson Woodbridge

Jayson Woodbridge was a successful investment banker in Canada and had an epiphany when he walked through a vineyard in Okanagan. He knew that he wanted to have his own vineyard and to create award-winning wine.

Since his debut in 2000, his 100% Cabernet Sauvignon has been living up to his motto of “stand amongst the very best or not at all’. Everything handcrafted, hand pruned, scrutinized and aligned for his desired response, near critical perfection and some of the finest wine known to man. His wines are terrific examples of Napa Cabernet and have made their way to cult status, so getting your hands on them can be difficult.

Tasting Notes

WA96
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard emerges from a parcel of old, volcanic soils that inform the wine to a significant degree. A vivid kaleidoscope of iron, ash, tar, smoke, crushed rocks and dark red berries take shape as this fabulous, pedigreed wine shows off its considerable personality. A cool, inward wine, the Ark is all about minerality and pure tension as a backdrop for the characteristic Hundred Acre fruit. A huge, mineral-soaked finish rounds things out in style. The 2009 is the rare Hundred Acre wine that is not likely to offer immediate pleasure. It will more than make up for that in the future. I can’t wait to see how this explosive, beguiling Cabernet develops over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.
