Hundred Acre 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Wraith
2018 Hundred Acre “Wraith” Cabernet Sauvignon (St Helena-Calistoga fruit)
Deep garnet-purple, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Wraith drifts effortlessly out of the glass with compelling scents of Morello cherries, boysenberry preserves and blackcurrant pastilles, plus hints of unsmoked cigars, wild sage, underbrush and pencil shavings. The taut, tightly packed, muscular, full-bodied palate quakes with energy, supported by beautifully ripe, grainy tannins, finishing incredibly long and provocatively perfumed. So lively and layered, this Wraith perfectly captures the captivating vibrancy of this great, great vintage! Drink Date 2027 - 2067. Lisa Perrotti-Brown 16th Dec 2021
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 100 Points
At no point shy in its expression, this is by any standard a great Cabernet. The aromas are a tidal wave of blueberry, mulberry, Cherry Bounce, bitter chocolate, black fig, date and kalamata olive scents. The wine is near majestic on the palate as extravagant, wonderfully harmonious flavors that mirror the nose almost fully submerge its rich tannic backbone. The finish is a wonderfully generous, long-lingering push of berry compote, dark cherry, bitter chocolate and oaky spice. If a joy to drink already it may need five more years to fully reveal its enormous virtues. Produced by Hundred Acre Winery.
