2016 hundred acre, kayli morgan vineyard, napa valley
Why We're Buying
Hundred Acre winery zigs where other wineries zag and the wine world is better for it. Hundred Acre Kayli Morgan Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon explores the possibility of what great wine can be and, in the process, has earned six 100-point ratings from wine critic Robert Parker (2002, 2005, 2007, 2013, 2015, and 2016.) The price tag of this opulent bottle of wine also shot up 33.3% from 2017 to 2021.
Similarly purple-hued, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard is more backward and closed compared to the 2015, but it’s certainly loaded with potential. Giving up a rock star bouquet of cedar pencil, cassis, darker currant, white flowers, espresso, and smoke tobacco, it hits the palate with an incredibly sexy, seamless texture that carries ultra-fine tannins, remarkable purity of fruit, subtle oak, and a great, great finish. The 2015 is certainly more showy at this point, but I think the 2016 will surpass it around age 10. I certainly look forward to finding out!
