Jayson Woodbridge applies his signature brand of genius to this new project from very old vines. 85-90-years-old, to be more specific. Around 92% Cabernet Sauvignon is bolstered by a proprietary selection of red varieties tucked into the vineyard. Deep in color and flamboyant in presentation, the nose is rich with redcurrant preserves, cassis, dark chocolate and roses, plus hints of Indian spices and a hard line of iron ore. The palate is pure velvet, beautifully fresh and loaded with spicy layers. Fans and followers of Hundred Acre will want to scoop up this well-priced endeavor from such a renowned winemaker.
Coming from two vineyards, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon The Dreamer sports a vivid purple hue to go with beautiful aromatics of darker currants, ripe cranberries, leafy tobacco, and spring flowers. I love its balance, it's medium to full-bodied, has gorgeous tannins, and a great finish.
