About

96

Produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (clones 7 and 337), coming from Calistoga, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Stormy Weather spent 30 months in 100% new French oak barrels. It reveals a deep garnet-purple color and notes of baked berries, plum preserves, spice cake, blackcurrant pastilles and chocolate box with wafts of menthol and incense. Full-bodied and seductively textured with beautifully soft tannins, it has bags of earth-laced black fruit preserves and a long, spicy finish. 404 cases were made.'

Clearly winemaking talent runs in the Woodbridge family. Cameron Woodbridge is the brother of Hundred Acre’s infamous genius, Jayson Woodbridge. Sourcing fruit from Calistoga and Oakville AVAs in Napa Valley, like Jayson, Cameron micro-ferments in oak barrels. And yet his style is clearly his own, producing wines with compelling precision and poise and with just enough unbridled decadence to make you wonder.

Product Description:

Deep garnet in color with aromas of cherries and blackberry with a waft of summer sweet pea blossoms. Flavors of bing cherry and blackberry jam with big, soft opulent tannins that carry through the mid-pallet into a long fruit bomb finish. Drinking beautifully now but will easily age 10-20 years.
