  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 96

    ($300) Full ruby-red. Multifaceted aromas of currant, iron, licorice, tobacco, dried herbs and minerals. The youthful palate boasts outstanding depth and clarity of dark fruit flavors, offering an uncanny combination of powerful structure and finesse. Explosive on the back end, finishing with outstanding palate-saturating breadth and extremely fine-grained tannins. I could see this wine enjoying 25 years of development in bottle, but it should really be forgotten for at least the next 5 or 6. Owner/winemaker Jayson Woodbridge told me this is the best wine he has made to date.

    The deep garnet colored 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard features gorgeous crushed plums, spicy blackberries, crème de cassis and Chinese five spice with potpourri and nuances of dried herbs, lavender, black tea and loads of crushed rocks, tilled soil and underbrush accents. Full-bodied and absolutely laden with earth and spice accents, it has a firm and grainy texture with exhilarating yet seamless freshness, finishing very long.

    Robust, intense and fleshy, offering a full-bodied mix of ripe cherry, plum, wild berry and raspberry fruit that's pure, rich and layered. Full-bodied, elegant and refined, ending with a subtle medley of ripe berry flavors.

    (15.5% alcohol): Bright, dark red with ruby tones. Rich, complex, rather claret-like aromas of plum, black raspberry, iron, licorice, violet and graphite, with complicating notes of caramel and mocha. Large-scaled, rich and ripe, conveying compelling sweetness to its red berry, mocha and mineral flavors. Not the most delineated vintage for this bottling but remarkably plush and full. Finishes with big, ripe, dusty tannins and outstanding lingering sweetness.

    Amazing, amazing wine. Still young, but drinking extremely well even now. Nose of dark fruit, notes of strawberry on the tongue, full bodied, incredible finish that lasts forever.

In 1998 Jayson Woodbridge released his first vintage, one Cabernet, made from his own 10-acre Kayli Morgan Vineyard. The goal was to create a "Right Bank" style Cabernet from those clay soils. With the second vintage, he earned scores in the mid-90s and sold the wine for double the previous vintage. In addition to the Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard, Woodbridge produces a Howell Mountain Cabernet from The Ark Vineyard and a single-vineyard Shiraz from his Ancient Way Vineyard in Barossa Valley.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
