Jayson was obsessed with the early farming families of the Napa Valley, and he sought out several of them in hopes to farm their vineyards and bring their fruit to a level that they couldn't have imagined when their forefathers bought their lands so long ago. Fortunate Son is a wine collective of these vineyards and grapes from those sites. The vineyards and wines are treated with the same standards as Jayson's legacy brand Hundred Acre, and will be a growing collection of wines from these heritage vineyards that are scattered throughout Napa.
ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 96 POINTS - "Jayson Woodbridge calls this a '21st Century Claret.' The blend is mainly Cabernet Sauvignon with a good dollop of Merlot and a dash of Petite Sirah. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon The Diplomat comes skipping out with bright notes of Morello cherries, mulberries, and black raspberries, over a profound core of warm cassis, hoisin and blackberry pie, with wafts of licorice and unsmoked cigars. The generous, full-bodied palate is soft and plush, featuring a powerful black fruit core with a lively backbone and loads of layers on the earthy finish."
