Rutherford AVA Cabernet Sauvignon shows great warmth and volume with aromas of sweet oak, briar, cassis, vanillin, black cherry and a hint of soy. This wine’s firm structure shows a bright fruit center of plum and cherry wrapped in chewy dark chocolate. This wine should be decanted for several hours at a minimum if opened in its youth, and will age for a good 20 years. Fire up the grill and throw on a New York strip! Drink 2014-2030. We recommend decanting.
|When I first had the idea to start HUNNICUTT I didn't hesitate to approach one of my oldest friends, Kirk Venge, to be my winemaker. Fortunately, he agreed and we began our adventure. We both had the same goal in mind, to focus on producing wines of exceptional quality from small lots of Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel that best express the flavor characteristics of the individual vineyards. Today, five years later, we are proud to release the third vintages of both Cab and Zin as well as our first vintage of Sauvignon Blanc! I hope you enjoy the wines as much as we do!
