Introducing One Hundred: An Exclusive Centennial Wine
To celebrate our Centennial at Pebble Beach Resorts, our team of sommeliers collaborated with world-renowned Napa winemaker Andy Erickson to create a limited edition wine called One Hundred.
Only 2,019 hand-numbered bottles were produced of this special 2016 vintage.
- 58% cabernet sauvignon from grapes grown in Oakville, Calif.
- 39% cabernet franc from grapes grown in Coombsville, Calif. and Carneros, Calif.
- 3% petit verdot, also from Oakville grapes
This proprietary blend was aged 22 months in 60% new French Oak barrels.
One Hundred is available for purchase exclusively at Stave Wine Cellar. Limited Magnums (1.5 liters), 3-liter bottles and 6-liter bottles are also available. One Hundred can also be ordered by the bottle when you dine at Pebble Beach Resorts.

A Unique Napa Blend
What does morning fog taste like?
“The cabernet sauvignon gives you really rich, dark fruit notes,” says winemaker Andy Erickson. “Cabernet franc adds more of an exotic spice note. Petit verdot on its own can be very intense. In musical terms, it’s almost like a bassoon: Alone, it may not be that pleasant; but as an undertone, it’s really beautiful. California wines can be very fruity. Petit verdot offers an earthy, grounded note and, because it is so dark, adds to the color of the wine.”
