Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard opens with wonderfully earthy, savory notes of truffles, black olives, charcuterie and fertile loam with a core of blackberry preserves, mincemeat pie and blueberry compote with hints of Indian spices, cardamom and scorched earth. The full-bodied palate is completely jam-packed with black fruit preserves and spicy nuances, with a very long, savory finish. (LPB)
Full red-ruby. Superripe aromas of plum, mocha, tobacco, caramel and truffle, with a hint of roasted fruits. Thick and voluptuous, with superconcentrated flavors of plum, truffle and mocha. This offers rare sweetness and opulence with just enough mid-palate energy to maintain its shape. Finishes with very suave, lush tannins and lingering notes of caramel and mocha. This one is just this side of too much, with aromas that began almost oxidative, and yet the wine became fresher with extended time in the recorked bottle without any loss of sweetness. A rather extreme vintage in the context of Hundred Acre, but a wine of extravagant breadth and richness. (ST)
Healthy dark red-ruby. Rich, ripe, deep aromas of roasted red berries, mocha, truffle and caramel. Plush, smooth and very ripe, showing lovely pliancy and depth to its dark raspberry and truffle flavors. Turns a bit medicinal on the back end, finishing with serious, slightly rough tannins and a lingering medicinal quality. I find this in an awkward stage. For his part, Jayson Woodbridge suggests giving this wine another ten years in the cellar. (A second bottle was truffley and slightly high-toned on the nose, then more backward in the mid-palate and more tannic on the aftertaste.) (ST) 92+
