2016 Hundred Acre 'Wraith' Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA

Fact Sheet

WINEMAKERS NOTES

“WRAITH is a trinity of Hundred Acre’s three single vineyard wines. It is a selection of
barrels set aside in the cellar from those waiting to be blended someday into the single
vineyard wines from Kayli Morgan, ARK or Few and Far Between. All very different and
incredibly unique. The WRAITH shows all the beauty and personality of each individual
vineyard and how they come together to develop even greater complexity.” — Jayson
Woodbridge, Winemaker

VINEYARD NOTES

WRAITH is all about the chance to experience the three incredible creatures (the Hundred Acre single vineyards) working together in symphony and perfect harmony to tell you about the vintage in all of its glory. In all of our vineyards, we pick only when the fruit is perfectly ripe; this doesn’t always happen at once. It is common for us to make multiple passes throughthe vineyard, picking different clusters from the same vines as they reach perfect maturity. This attention to detail is critical to making a wine the caliber of Hundred Acre.

VINTAGE NOTES

The 2016 vintage was the beginning of the end of the drought in Napa Valley. The vines
were finally given a break with close to normal amount of rain in the winter preceding the vintage. 2016 was cooler overall than 2014 & 2015, it was warm and dry, but without the massive spikes in temperature that challenged the previous two years. 2016 was the kind of year where even a blind squirrel can find a nut, so most wineries could coast along and make good wine. We don’t coast, so 2016 was an epic vintage for us, one for the ages.

COOPERAGE

Aged for 40 months in the nest French oak barrique. The stave wood is hand-selected for ultra-tight grain, then air dried for three years before being made into barrels.

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. Reviewed by Jeb Dunnuck, Issue date: Febuary 2023. Drinking window: 2023 - 2053.

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+. Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Issue date: December 2021. Drinking window: 2027 - 2067.
