Hundred Acre Ark 2018
Hundred Acre Ark 2018. The 2018 Hundred Acre Ark Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a critically acclaimed and sought-after red wine produced in the Howell Mountain area of Napa Valley, California. This Cabernet Sauvignon is known for its opulence and depth, featuring a rich array of aromas and flavors. The scent profile is full of freshly crushed red and black currants, black cherries, black raspberries, and cassis, with striking notes of lilacs and fragrant earth adding to its complexity.
Further distinguishing this vintage is its meticulous aging process. The wine is aged for at least 30 months in premium French oak barriques, which are specifically selected for their ultra-tight grain. The wood is air-dried for three years prior to use, which imparts nuanced oaky notes to the wine, including hints of oak, vanilla, and chocolate, enriching the overall flavor profile.
