    (the only one of these top cabernet bottlings that includes of cab franc): Pure but youthfully inexpressive nose offers superripe aromas of cherry, licorice and herbs. Impressively thick and fleshy but a bit less refined and delineated than the Ark or Kayli Morgan bottlings, showing stronger oakiness and notes of chocolate and herbs. Finishes with slightly dusty tannins and terrific lingering sweetness. Perhaps just a tad less concentration of fruit for the oak than the two top wines here in 2009--and less floral today.

    Defined by rich, plush, silky flavors of dark berry and mocha, this is remarkably elegant and polished, deep and persistent. This glides along with a seamless texture and a long, saturating finish.

    The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Few and Far Between Vineyard has developed beautifully since I last tasted it from barrel. Mocha, espresso, exotic spices and orange peel all come together in this inviting, multi-dimensional Cabernet Sauvignon. Totally alive in the glass, the wine is constantly changing, and reveals different sides of its personality with each taste. Hints of sweet red berries and cloves add complexity on the long, polished finish. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.

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.
