2006 Hundred Acre "Kayli Morgan" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1048839 99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet in color, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard jumps out of the glass with red and black cherry preserves, warm cassis and blackberry tart with hints of lilacs, rose hip tea and lamb dripping with rosemary and baking spices. Full-bodied, concentrated and wonderfully layered, it has a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and mineral laced. (LPB) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep red-ruby. Blacker, more brooding nose than the Ark: cassis, licorice and a whiff of caramel. Then sweet, lush and full in the mouth, with superb minerality contributing to this very deep wine's almost 3-D texture. Plusher and more effusive than the Ark, finishing with outstanding palate-coating breadth and length. Reminds me of a top Pomerol. Owner Jayson Woodbridge calls this bottling 'a sexy, rumbling Ferrari,' while he describes the Ark, with its structure, power and elegance, as a Rolls-Royce. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2009)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aging beautifully, marked by a tight, firm structure and dusty, loamy tannins that provide backbone and muscle, this slowly uncoils to reveal spicy red cherry, raspberry and boysenberry notes that cascade on the finish. Ends with a crushed-rock, gravelly edge and tannins that give the flavors traction. (JL, Web Only-2016) Inner quote mark

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright medium red with ruby tones. Deep, vibrant aromas of black cherry, black raspberry and licorice. Sweet, spicy and concentrated, showing a compelling creamy quality to its youthful black fruit and spice flavors. But this rather brooding, youthfully medicinal wine is in an awkward stage today, with its firm spine of ripe tannins currently dominating. Hold this for another five years. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (6/2016)

K&L Notes

99 points Robert Parker for Wine Advocate: "Wow! I can’t say I underrated this wine, but, boy, it is pushing perfection ... and pushing it quickly. A nearly flawless, monumental effort, the 2006 boasts an extraordinary opaque purple color as well as a sumptuous bouquet of spring flowers, licorice, chocolate, toffee, espresso roast and blackberries. This multilayered wine is built like a skyscraper, with terrific intensity, but no heaviness, stunning richness, full body and great purity. With a youthful, voluptuous mouthfeel, it can be drunk now for its extraordinary purity of fruit, but it will not hit its prime for at least a decade. It should keep for three decades." (6/2012)
