  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 96

    (15.5% alcohol): Full red-ruby. Dark cherry, currant, mocha and minerals on the nose. Lush on entry, then creamy and deep in the middle but with a light touch; at once less open-knit and more vibrant than the Ark. Very shapely wine with a lot of material in reserve. The whiplash of a finish features mouthcoating, rather powerful tannins and terrific lift and length. Superb, and likely to be very long-lived.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

    A rich, supple, graceful style, with gentle layers of wild berry, plum, black licorice, creme de cassis and vanilla. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and great length.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 96

    More European in style than some of its siblings, the 2008 exhibits good acidity, more noticeable tannin (but it is extremely young), and plenty of crushed rock, espresso roast and licorice characteristics intermixed with a volcanic minerality. Full-bodied, ripe and opulent, with a closed, formidable personality, it should be at its apogee between 2018 and 2035.

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.
