Tasting Notes for Hundred Acre Ark
From Howell Mountain, the 2014 Hundred Acre Ark Cabernet Sauvignon Ark reveals the mulberry, chocolate, graphite and an incredibly dense bluish black color, massive fruit extract and richness, but without a hard edge to be found. All three of these are extraordinary wines, which is what we’ve come to expect from Jayson Woodbridge.
About Hundred Acre Ark Vineyard:
As Jayson Woodbridgesays, “The secret to Hundred Acre is no compromise and no detail overlooked, ever.” The single estate vineyard Ark is located just outside St. Helena, at the base of Howell Mountain. The vineyard spans a 180 degree arc of the sun over its half-mile length. Hot afternoon sun known to damage aromatics in the fruit (on the hottest days), is blocked by the shade of Glass Mountain (named for the rare obsidian rock found in the soil and used for ancient weapons such as arrowheads) which rises to the western side of the ARK. This is an exceptional wine.
