Hundred Acre Kayli Morgan Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan (only 25% of the normal production or 250 cases were made) offers a remarkable suppleness and velvety character to the tannins. Despite being 100% Cabernet Sauvignon you would almost swear this was a Merlot-based wine from one of the finest vineyards in Pomerol given its lusciousness and appeal. This spectacular 2010 possesses abundant creamy creme de cassis notes intermixed with notions of mulberries and spicy oak and a broad, expansive, savory appeal with decent acidity as well as ripe tannin. As in nearly every vintage, this 2010 can be drunk early yet has the uncanny intensity and overall harmony to age effortlessly. We still don't know how long this wine will last since the first vintage was only in 2000, which was not one of Napa's greatest years. The 2010 should hold up for at least 20-30 years.
Wine SpectatorFirm, intense and vibrant, with a rich, dense core of dried currant and dark berry, showing touches of mocha and espresso. Ends with rich, chewy tannins that give the flavors traction, revealing a burst of red candy. Best from 2014 through 2026. 600 cases made.
