    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ark is gorgeously rich, with a deep ruby/purple color and crème de cassis aromas intermixed with some graphite, licorice, fresh tobacco, espresso, and spice. Dense and massive, with rich, opulent, structured layers of mocha, blackberry, black currant and plum. The wine expresses supple tannins and beautiful concentration, and the flavors run deep and gain momentum on the finish.

    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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    Richer, fuller and more intense is the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard. This wine displays more graphite and floral notes as well as deeper blueberry and black raspberry characteristics. Like most 2009s, it is full of charm, complete and well-balanced, and for a Napa Cabernet, surprisingly precocious and evolved.
    Range: 93-95

    The Wine Advocate

    This elegant style displays backbone and vibrancy, offering fresh, ripe, generous black cherry and blackberry fruit, with silky tannins.

    Fine Vines (8/14/2013)
    Still in its youth, but, shows fruit and flowers while driven by high tannins and acidity, requiring decanting or time to allow the fruits to become more powerful in taste as apposed to the sharp tannins. Give this baby a few years and be amazed by Jason Woodbridges personal vineyards.
