If You See Kay…

Posted by John Eckhart Posted on Feb - 18 - 2013

if-you-see-kay-labelDear Enotecans,

Plausible deniability.  That’s what this wine is about.  We have had several requests for this wine, apparently it’s making headlines and national news.  Enoteca has some inventory now and our vendors are telling us it’s selling out fast.  We don’t intend to offend anyone, so if this isn’t your glass of wine, feel free to delete and wait for the next one!

Wine Reminders:

Those who remember the first vintage of Layer Cake will want to take notice.  It’s the same wine maker and a new project.  People are discovering this wine and it’s movin’!

kay SMELLS AMAZING; she’s soft, creamy, juicy, rich, and powerful all at the same time. A dark and brooding wine, hints of imminent  danger, ripe with confidence and purpose; on a mission. She’s more than a mouthful, but never wasteful – like handfuls of juicy ripe blackberries dripping from your hands, so perfectly ripe that you have to go back again and again for another taste.

Jake’s tasting notes

Ripe, fresh-crushed raspberries, extremely fresh fruit nose, low-acid low-tannin quaffer that goes huge on fruit flavor…a rare beauty with Red Mountain-style huge fruit and European earthiness and warmth.

If You See Kay…

Jayson Woodbridge’s winemaking philosophy is “Wide open throttle or don’t bother doing it at all,” i.e. risk everything; all in at all times. With that in mind, no matter where you see kay, you can be sure you will be drinking a bottle of red wine made with One Hundred Percent pure unrestrained Attitude.

The bottom line is, Jayson doesn’t care what anybody thinks. He searches out the best vineyards and makes uncompromised wine; wine that is powerful and complex, yet elegant.

Robert Parker said of Jayson, “Woodbridge is irrefutably a contrarian, but he is the kind of person you want going against mainstream, conventional thoughts. His wines are among the most individualistic in California.”

SURRENDER YOUR INHIBITIONS. Take kay to your next dinner party and watch her turn heads and become the center of conversation.

if-you-see-kay-bottle What is the back story for this wine?

If you see kay is another innovative offering from visionary winemaker Jayson Woodbridge and partner Chris Radomski.

Having created a host of successful brands such as Hundred Acre, Cherry Pie and Layer Cake wines, they saw the opportunity to develop a sexy, provocative wine outside the boundaries of traditional wine styles, themes and packaging. Selecting fruit from top vineyards in Lazio, Italy, if you see kay is a luscious Cabernet Sauvignon blend that boldly illustrates the team’s winemaking philosophy: “Risk everything.”

The expression, “if you see kay” originated with Irish author James Joyce’s 1922 masterpiece Ulysses, written as an adaptation of Homer’s Odyssey. This iconic novel turned the concept of fiction on its head and after years of controversy, Ulysses has come to be considered one of the finest Modernist works of all time. The reference within the brand name serves as a reminder that visionaries rarely play by the rules. The connection is that the opening stanza from the Homer’s Odyssey has been the central theme with Hundred Acre Wines since day  one…everything comes full circle.

If you see Kay is a culmination of outstanding winemaking and the image of a strong woman, Kay, who embodies the principles of living life to the fullest.  The graphic image of Kay as a tattooed woman on a motorcycle perfectly captures the “wide open-throttle” approach to winemaking and was an apt representation of the new brand.

Ultimately, whether one explores the image, philosophy or the wine itself, if you see kay is about freedom—being true to one’s beliefs and dispensing with conventional thinking and boundaries.  And, if necessary, kick-starting a little controversy along the way. Enjoy the ride, Kay is!

Who is Kay?

kay is a creature; she is an embodiment of a lifestyle, a genre, a feeling in your gut.  kay is a force of nature, a wanderer.She represents the
philosophy of “Wide Open Throttle or don’t bother doing it at all”. She’s not trying to be, she just is. Always uncontrollable, She’s wanted.

This is the way we approach winemaking, risk everything, ALL IN AT ALL TIMES and never, ever, be the one to flinch when the headlights are bearing down on you, hit the throttle.

No matter where you see kay, you can be sure you will be drinking a bottle of if you see kay red wine made with One Hundred Percent pure UNRESTRAINED attitude.

The bottom line is we don’t care what anybody thinks, we search out the best vineyards and we make uncompromised wine; WINE THAT IS POWERFUL AND COMPLEX, YET AN ELEGANT MYSTERY.

We don’t care about status quo, and we know that you don’t care what varietal is on the label, you just want to open the bottle and think “this wine kicks ass”. Period end of story – NO PRISONERS THANK YOU.

kay is elusive; she can be coming from anywhere, around any corner, the world.

if you see kay – in italy

You will know in no uncertain terms that you are drinking a massive red from an ANCIENT LAND — lazio — largely Cabernet-based, a touch of Petite Verdot and Primitivo.

You’ll see her cruising through the lazio region, just South of Rome. The climate is almost identical to kay’s home in the Napa Valley, warm summer days and cool nights.

kay SMELLS AMAZING; she’s soft, creamy, juicy, rich, and powerful all at the same time. A dark and brooding wine, hints of imminent  danger, ripe with confidence and purpose; on a mission. She’s more than a mouthful, but never wasteful – like handfuls of juicy ripe blackberries dripping from your hands, so perfectly ripe that you have to go back again and again for another taste.

SURRENDER YOUR INHIBITIONS COMPLETELY, you can have a taste of kay, but you’ll never have her. Put the throttle down, never spit, always swallow. Drink it while it’s here, she won’t stick around.
