THE REVIEW

What started with "You have to try this" may very well end up being our red Wine of The Year.
    We were floored when we recently tasted the 2014 If You See Kay. "Floored," not a word we use lightly, is an apt description of how we felt when we first tasted this exotic Italian red. Words like "wow" and "delicious" simply don't do it justice.
    The wine is owned by Hundred Acre of Napa Valley, California and made by the same wine maker, Jayson Woodbridge. Their iconic Napa Cabernets consistently score 96-100 points and are priced in excess of $300 per bottle. They are impressive wines to say the least, but their new venture, If You See Kay, boasts the best of California and Italy at a price that puts it in contention for Wine of The Year.
    A ridiculously expressive flavor profile that supports the rebel-like imagery of the label, the wine is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of Petite Verdot and Primitivo. The fruit of this amazing wine comes from some of the finest vineyards in Lazio, Italy which is just south of Rome.
     Big, bold aromas of dark berry and cherry have a compelling allure that leads to a velvety and unfolding core of dark fruit, toasty sweet oak and a dash of acidity. It is a stunning and seductive wine. It has a rich California quality but a distinctive Italian flair and finish. California Cabernet fans will love its rich texture and Super Tuscan fans will relish its Mediterranean minerality.
    We were not looking for Kay specifically, but we're thrilled we found her. Enjoy now and over the next five years.Read More »
