Hundred Acre Fortunate Son Cabernet Sauvignon The Warrior St. Helena Napa Valley 2019  - First Bottle


98 Jeb Dunnuck -
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon The Warrior is riveting stuff, offering an incredible array of sweet darker currants, tobacco leaf, lead pencil, and classy oak. It's a big, rich wine, yet it's not over the top and has a semi-opaque purple hue, medium to full body, seamless tannins, and a layered, silky, incredibly satisfying style that's going to evolve for two decades.
97 James Suckling -
Aromas of dark berries, chocolate, terra-cotta and bark. Full and layered with fine velvety tannins that give a juicy and intense finish. Delicious all around. From the owner of Napa’s Hundred Acre winery. Drink or hold.
95 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
Across the board, the 2019s at this address are riper and plusher than the 2018s, and Fortunate Son's 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon The Warrior is no exception. Black cherries and red cherries join cedar and vanilla shadings on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is expansive and plush, turning velvety on the long finish.

Hundred Acre has become a California legend – making big, extracted, and powerfully complex limited production wines from sites throughout the Napa Valley. Their newest project, Fortunate Son is made in the same style – with the same meticulous farming and winemaking techniques that brought Hundred Acre to prominence.

Jayson Woodbridge is a force of nature. A former investment banker, turned vintner, turned global winemaking phenom – love him or hate him… he’ll power ever onward just the same. Layer Cake, Cherry Pie, Hundred Acre – he’s a builder and someone who knows wine on both a micro and macro level. For Fortunate Son, Jayson acquired the long-standing David Fulton vineyard in the very heart of Saint Helena. Planted by David Fulton in 1860 – it was Napa’s longest continuously owned family vineyard, passed down over four generations up until six or seven years ago when Fulton Mather sold the property. Some of Napa’s oldest living vines are found here, on the St. Helena benchland, close to a bend in the Napa river.

For now, at least, the Fortunate Son project relies on some selected parcels of purchased fruit, from top secret sources built over the years by Jayson and his Hundred Acre team. We’re thrilled to have scored some of these early releases – from the absolutely stunning 2019 vintage – that have already made a distinct impression on major critics. 98 POINTS for The Warrior – a single vineyard cabernet sauvignon from St. Helena, followed by a solid 95 POINTS for The Diplomat – a cabernet sauvignon and merlot blend, with a small dash of that old-vine petite sirah that the David Fulton property was revered for (seriously, one of the best!) Both of these wines have “Cult Napa” written all over them (not literally.) We were only able to score a handful of each, and these are sure to join the likes of Hundred Acre and other impossible-to-source wines real, real soon. Get yours while you can, and you can thank us later!

About the Producer

Proprietor and former investment banker Jayson Woodbridge bought the 3.6 hectare (9 acre) Kayli Morgan vineyard in Howel Mountain in the late 1900's, naming it for the Hundred Acre Wood from Winnie-the-Pooh. The portfolio then included the ark vineyard on Glass mountain and the Few and Far between cuvee from the historic Eisele Vineyard. The vineyards are managed so carefully that vines are pruned to one grape cluster per vine and at the winery, grapes are sorted berry by berry. Hundred Acres also makes the ancient way Shiraz from the Barossa Valley in Australia. Jayson Woodbridge also owns Layer Cake, a collection of wines from around the world at more everyday prices, also including Cherry Pie and Cherry Tart wines.
