Hundred Acre 2006 Kayli Morgan Vineyard

    Tasting notes: Purple-black and darkly luscious, this full-bodied red has intense aromas and flavors—black raspberry, cassis, melted dark chocolate, and roasted coffee—that seem the embodiment of its maker’s own passionate obsession. Worth knowing: In 1998, Canadian-born investment banker Jayson Woodbridge came across a slope above Beringer’s Chabot Vineyard that was for sale. He purchased it and hired prominent vineyard manager Jim Barbour, who had planted the Chabot Vineyard back in the mid-1970s, to rehabilitate the property. He then asked Barbour about purchasing another property he had been eyeing: the Kayli Morgan Vineyard, located at the base of Howell Mountain. Barbour, who had developed that vineyard as well, heartily approved.
