    Hundred Acre Cabernet Sauvignon 2003
    Kayli Morgan Vineyard
    Bottle (5)
    "The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard appears to be the finest of the three most recent vintages I tasted. Reflecting Woodbridge's impeccable attention to detail, it boasts a dense plum/purple color, a sweet, smoky perfume of melted caramels, blackberries, cassis, cedar, spice box, and hints of graphite, toffee, and oak, an expansive, rich, full-bodied personality, and beautifully integrated tannin. Even though it is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, it tastes like it could have come from the tenderloin section of Pomerol." (95pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #168, Dec 2006)

    "One of the top wines of the vintage, it tastes much younger than the 2002, displaying lots of tannin along with hints of melted chocolate, licorice, cedarwood, lead pencil shavings, toffee, blackberries and cassis. It exhibits great fruit and a full-bodied finish, but also some tannins in the finish." (93+ pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #201, June 2012)

    "The sensational 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard (100% varietal) is a candidate for wine of the vintage. Although it came in at 15.9% alcohol, it is not the least bit hot or out of balance. The wine boasts glorious levels of creme de cassis fruit and licorice that combine to form the background of a perfumed, aromatic wine with full-bodied richness, a voluptuous texture and both hedonistic and intellectual appeal that are sine qua non. This sensational Cabernet Sauvignon seems velvety, but every one of Woodbridge’s wines that I have tasted is velvety from infancy. Yet they age and age as the 2000, a far from ideal vintage, has proven time after time. There is always a Pomerol-like silky texture to these wines, despite the fact they are 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2003 is a titanic wine that can be drunk now or in 20 years given the genius of Jayson Woodbridge." (98 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #207, June 2013)

    "Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard opens with wonderfully earthy, savory notes of truffles, black olives, charcuterie and fertile loam with a core of blackberry preserves, mincemeat pie and blueberry compote with hints of Indian spices, cardamom and scorched earth. The full-bodied palate is completely jam-packed with black fruit preserves and spicy nuances, with a very long, savory finish." (98 pts. Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, Dec. 2018)

    "Healthy dark red-ruby. Rich, ripe, deep aromas of roasted red berries, mocha, truffle and caramel. Plush, smooth and very ripe, showing lovely pliancy and depth to its dark raspberry and truffle flavors." (92+ pts. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, Mar. 2016)
