    Creamy, mocha-scented oak provides a seductive introduction, easing the way for a rich mix of cherry, currant, plum and licorice flavors. This continues to gain depth and nuance, ending as it begins. Drink now through 2032. 960 cases made.

    The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard is from a 15-acre parcel with 12.5 acres planted and the famous red soils of Howell Mountain with loads of gravel and pebbles. This wine was also aged 32 months in cask prior to being released. More chocolate and mulberry, as well as graphite, are present in this wine that has fabulous vibrancy, a full-bodied intensity, impressive levels of blackberry and cassis fruit, a touch of licorice and spice. It should drink well for 30-35 years.

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.
