Wine Advocate 31st Jan 2018
91 Points Lisa Perrotti-Brown

“Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Franc Wandering Star opens with expressive scents of black forest cake, cassis and allspice with a waft of cigar box. Medium to full-bodied with plenty of rich, savory fruit and a cedary/earthy hint, it’s framed by grainy tannins and finishes on a lingering spicy note. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2031

“The deep garnet-purple colored 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up aromas of cassis, blackberries and black cherries with violets and earthy/savory notions in the background. The full-bodied mouth is soft and rich with velvety tannins and a lively lift to the long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2031


2009 Stormy Weather Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Advocate #204 Dec 2012
91 Points Antonio Galloni

“Freshly cut flowers, spices, raspberry jam and mocha are some of the many nuances that emerge from the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2009 has plenty of fruit and depth, but not quite the stunning, drop-dead gorgeousness of the 2008. Nevertheless, it is intriguing and beautiful. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.


 2008 Stormy Weather Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Advocate #204 Dec 2012
94 Points Antonio Galloni

Cameron Woodbridge did a great job with the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, his best effort to date. Not a wine for the timid, the 2008 explodes from the glass with a rush of dark fruit, chocolate, mocha and sweet spices. Unapologetically ripe, full-bodied and opulent, the 2008 boasts stunning depth and plenty of intrigue. The equally huge, seamless finish is striking in its beauty and sheer personality. There is an awful lot to like here. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.

Mature and graceful, displaying a tannic bite that takes the flavors down a cedary oak path, with details of mocha-scented currant and crushed rock. Drink now. 648 cases made. –JL

2007 Stormy Weather Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Advocate #204 Dec 2012
93 Points Antonio Galloni

“A picture-perfect example of the vintage, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is rich, layered and intense. Dark plums, cherries, menthol, cloves and violets all flesh out in this full-bodied, extroverted wine. Hints of mocha and espresso appear later, adding further depth and complexity. The style is powerful and opulent, yet all the elements are very nicely balanced. A serious, deep wine, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is an impressive showing from Cameron Woodbridge. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.”

“Cameron Woodbridge learned to make wine working alongside his brother, Jayson Woodbridge, at Hundred Acre. The Stormy Weather Cabernets, however, have their own distinct personalities. I tasted three vintages, all of them promising.”
