Limited release from Hundred Acre.  One of the top-scoring Cabs of the vintage. Wraith is a blend of hand-selected barrels of 2016 Ark Vineyard, Kayli Morgan Vineyard and Far Between Cabernet Sauvignon.

100 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Pure perfection in red wine, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Wraith tops out on my scale and has everything I look for in wine. Deep purple-hued with a smorgasbord-like array of dark currants, smoked tobacco, new leather, camphor, and graphite, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a deep, layered, concentrated mid-palate, ultra-fine tannins, and flawless balance. World class in every way, it already offers pleasure today given its balance and purity, but it will evolve for 30 years if well stored. This is legendary Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon."

100 Points Robert Parker: "Deep garnet colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Wraith soars out of the glass with Black Forest cake, Indian spices, tobacco leaf, dried Provence herbs and smoked meats notes, with touches of damp soil, black truffles and fragrant earth. Full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with layer upon earthy layer of nuanced black fruits, framed by finely grained tannins, finishing with a lifted, bright red fruit burst. It's like a complex scent puzzle that only begins to make sense when knitted with the textures in the mouth and then long after the wine has been swallowed. Still incredibly youthful, give it another 5 years in the cellar, at least, and drink it over the next 40 years+.



...Visiting with Hundred Acre’s contrarian proprietor, the bigger-than-life, outspoken and suffers-no-fools Jayson Woodbridge, is always a highlight. First of all, and most importantly, is his commitment to producing great wines. At the same time, he is turning out attractive, consumer-friendly Pinot Noirs. Then there are his inexpensive Layer Cake wines, showing that his portfolio covers the values as well. But what follows is a look at his top-of-the-line wines from the 15-acre Kayli Morgan Vineyard east of St. Helena, his 15-acre Howell Mountain Ark Vineyard and a spectacular site adjacent to the Eisele Vineyard south of Calistoga called Few and Far Between. His first vintage was the 2000 Kayli Morgan. At that time he was using consultant Philippe Melka, but he has been on his own for a number of years and the wine quality continues to be among the most singular and profound in all of Napa Valley. His outspoken personality doesn’t often sit well in conservative and quiet Napa, but he only needs to let his wines do the talking. Little else needs to be said or done."
