Pop n poured this. More merlot than usual this year and that is not a bad thing (merlot is farella). It's interesting because most 2013s and 2015s I would say will age better than 14, but hunnicutt's 13/15s should be drank before the 14.

Impressive. Deep dark ruby color. The nose is opulent with black cherry, blackberry, plum, oak, hints of vanilla and tobacco. On the pallet it is intense with dark fruit; a supple and velvety mouthfeel. Medium-high tannings with a long finish. Every bit complex and round. One of the best bang-for-the-buck Napa Cab’s I’ve tasted in long long time. Cheers!

Nice dense cherry nose. A touch of green, some licorice, and pleasant espresso bitter notes keep it from being a one dimensional fruitforward cab. Dark black cherry fruit. Medium + tannin. Really appreciate hunnicutt going easy on the oak on their wines. Drinkable now.

It’s here! The 2015 is outstanding. Had to try one right away. It needs a little time. 3 hour decant. Good spice, deep, dark fruit, and nice, round tannins. Still a tiny bit rough around the edges. It shows some alcohol heat on the finish, but overall very drinkable now. Gonna sit the rest for a few years (yea right). Gonna order more. Over under on opening the 2014 9-3-5? 3 months. Jason Oliver what’s your bet / recommendation?
