Weingut über: Cabernet Sauvignon Few & Far between Vineyard

-- Weingut: All Hundred Acre wines are made by a very exacting standard in the vineyard. Pruning to one cluster [per shoot], harvesting in multiple passes [five or more], sorting the fruit berry by berry, fermenting in small, French oak fermenters, and long aging in the finest barriques. The secret to Hundred Acre is no compromise and no detail overlooked, ever. The Few and Far Between vineyard, Hundred Acre's smallest production and smallest vineyard, is truly a staggeringly beautiful place in the world—many have said it's magical. It's also home to Jayson and Helen Woodbridge.


Jeb Dunnuck über: Cabernet Sauvignon Few & Far between Vineyard

-- Jeb Dunnuck: Probably my favorite in the entire lineup, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Few and Far Between comes from a tiny site just outside of Calistoga formerly known as the Pickett Road Vineyard. Like the 2015, the 2016 includes a touch of Cabernet Franc and spent the usual 32 months in 100% new French oak. This full-bodied, majestic Napa Valley Cabernet reveals a dense purple hue, awesome crème de cassis and kirsch fruit, amazing complexity in its spicy, sandalwood, and floral aromatics, and a massive yet elegant, lengthy personality. The texture is through the roof, it’s as seamless and polished as they come, perfectly balanced, and while I’d happily drink bottles today, my money is on this evolving for 3-4 decades. 100/100


Parker zu 2015 über: Cabernet Sauvignon Few & Far between Vineyard

-- Parker zu 2015: The medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Few and Far Between belts out an aria of black cherries, kirsch, black raspberries, roses and lilacs scents with Indian spices, underbrush and cigar box nuances plus a waft of iron ore. The palate is full-bodied and firm yet plushly textured, generating wave after wave of perfumed elegance. It finishes epically long, multilayered and with great freshness, culminating in loads of captivating minerally sparks. Wow, just wow. 100/100
