KAYLI MORGAN CABERNET SAUVIGNON
All Hundred Acre wines are made by 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.
Kayli Morgan is where it all started. In August of 2000, I paid the
highest price to date ever paid for planted vineyard land in Napa
Valley. After examining the vineyard over a week’s time, I knew I
had to own it and that it would make one of the world’s greatest
wines. Six weeks later we harvested the first vintage of Hundred
Acre, and in a year that was panned by the press, I made one of the
highest scoring wines of the vintage…the rest is history.
The Kayli Morgan Vineyard is located just north of Saint Helena,
California at the base of Howell Mountain. The soils are a chocolaty
clay; holding moisture to keep the vines cool. As summer progresses,
the ground forms micro-cracks, allowing the roots to seek water
deeper and deeper into the earth; as they do, they pick up minerals
that give Kayli Morgan its distinctive characteristics. Kayli Morgan
is a single estate vineyard and 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Mr. Antonio Galloni recently wrote: “The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard is one of
the very best wines among this set of new releases. A huge, explosive wine, the Kayli Morgan is endowed
with superb purity, grace and intensity. Violets, menthol, licorice, orange rind, mocha and espresso all
come to life as this vibrant, racy Cabernet Sauvignon shows off its considerable and utterly irrepressible
personality. The 2010 is opulent, full-bodied and flat-out delicious. Anticipated maturity: 216-2030”
Hundred Acre wines are aged for 24 to 30 months in the finest center of France oak barrique. The stave
wood is hand-selected for ultra-tight grain, then air dried for three years before being made into barrels.
