Tasting Notes

WA100

Additional proof that maverick genius Jayson Woodbridge is at the top of his game, the 2008 Fortification is another perfect fortified wine. It offers up notes of white flowers, blackberry liqueur, charcoal embers, licorice and chocolate as well as a striking resemblance to one of my favorite dark roast coffees from the Death Wish Coffee Company. Inky, rich and full-bodied with smooth, silky tannins, and gorgeously integrated brandy which does not burn or come across as rough or astringent (even in such a young fortified wine), this utterly profound wine should age for 50 or more years.

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.
