2013 SOLD OUT! 2013 Hunnicutt Cabernet Sauvignon WA 95pts Only 568 cases produced
2013 Cabernet Sauvignon
Robert Parker's new scores are in! And Wow. Just Wow. Just as we were set to launch with Hunnicutt, Robert Parker goes out and scores the 2013 Hunnicutt Cab a whopping 95 points! We wanted to tout this wine as a true hidden gem, but Mr. Parker is going to make sure Hunnitcutt is "hidden" no longer.
Parker describes this wine as "stunning" and "terrific", with fruit that "jumps from the glass."
At $60 and 95 points, this wine has one of the greatest points-to-price ratios in all of Napa Valley. Needless to say, it's not a matter of "if" we sell out of this wine, but "when".
RATINGS & REVIEWS
95 Points, Robert Parker Hunnicutt’s 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa, a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot, is stunning. Overseen by winemaker Kirk Venge, the son of legendary Nils Venge, this 568-case cuvée is terrific. Sweet blackberry fruits jump from the glass, the wine broad, savory and full-bodied with beautiful purity and intensity. It’s also a great value in Napa Cabernet Sauvignon given the quality. Drink it over the next 20 years. Robert Parker, Dec. 2015
FROM THE WINERY
Our 2013 Napa Cab is a real beauty. Perfumed, almost feminine notes of strawberry and raspberry tart dance on the edge of the glass with darker cassis, black cherry and vanilla adding layers to the nose and hinting at the beast within. On the entry, volumes of supple bright cherry, plum and blueberry pie rush to the fore and linger well into the mid-palate. As the tannins begin to wash over and meld with the bright fruit notes, soft secondary flavors of milk chocolate and pie crust coat the palate and provide harmonious balance through the finish. This wine shows great promise and speaks well for 2013 as a year with great aging potential. While 2012 was a bombastic show stopper, 2013 will prove to be the nuanced genius plucking the right strings for years to come.
Patience is a virtue, but then again, who needs virtue when great wine is waiting. Drink when you are ready, decant with vigor over the next 5 years and confidently enjoy to 2030.
