Hunnicutt

Knights Valley Merlot 2016

As @David T said, this has bigger tannins. Cab lover’s merlot. Enjoy the tobacco and leather balanced with the generous fruit. This is a fun one-off one for hunnicutt. Good value. — 2 years ago

You’ve been enjoying their wines far longer than me for comparison. However, I read this wine similarly. It does have bigger tannins for Merlot; which for me, says it’s going to need 7-10 years in bottle to show just how good it can be. It’s a Merlot to cellar.

St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

95-96. Compared to the hunnicutt last night, this is more fruit forward with a sweeter softer glycerine profile. Dark red fruit/ Blackberry/cassis/spice/slight hint of cocoa. Both great wines. — 2 years ago

Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2017

We visited Hunnicutt based on visit to DR Stephens. Don Stephens (DR Stephens) is the father of Justin Stephens, owner of Hunnicutt. We went to see if the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. After @Jason and Jennie tasted the stunning 14 DR Stephens Collateral with us at a great tasting event they organized, we visited DR Stephens last year. Finally, appointment times aligned for us to visit Hunnicutt this market trip.

Andrew their Hospitality Director was our host. He is a very nice guy and shared a well of knowledge about Hunnicutt with us. We started our tasting with the new release of their 17 Sonoma Chardonnay.

On the nose; bright green apple, lemon, pineapple, some buttered popcorn, limestone minerals, saline, some marzipan, custard, cream, fruit blossoms, spring flowers and yellow lilies.

The body is full, round with very good texture. There’s a waxy character. Green apple, lemon, pineapple, honeysuckle, some buttered popcorn, limestone minerals, saline, some marzipan, custard, cream, fruit blossoms spring flowers and yellow lilies. The acidity is round & beautiful. The well polished finish is; elegant, seamless with some white spice and volcanic minerals on the long set. Nice bottling.

I really dig the balance between the full-bodied fruit and acidity. This is my style of chard.

Hunnicutt

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

This is the drift rows single vineyard cab (oakville 88 vineyard). Virtual tasting with Justin and Andrew. They made this different than the typical hunnicutt big and rich style. They picked a little earlier for a more ageworthy balanced wine. Nice minerality and dark cherry. 93-94+. Would like to see this in 10 years but you can drink it now with a decant. — 7 months ago
