Hundred Acre Deep Time 2015
The 2015 Hundred Acre Deep Time Cabernet Sauvignon, according to Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, scores a high 98 points. The wine has a remarkable aging process, having spent 48 months in French oak barrels. It presents a deep garnet color and offers a profound fragrance with notes of potpourri, star anise, sautéed herbs, rusty nails, and cigar box. This is complemented by a core of blackcurrant preserves and prunes, and a touch of crushed rocks. The full-bodied palate delivers concentrated and satiny layers of exotic spice and incense-spiked black fruit preserves, finishing with an impressive length and depth. It’s ready to drink now but is expected to continue evolving and be suitable for cellaring for the next 25 years or more.
