Hunnicutt Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Napa, CA- Aromas of blackberry and black cherry jump out of the glass and give hints to the powerful underlying fruit that can be found on the palate. Toasted oak provides the backdrop for the additional flavors of blueberries, vanilla, and spice that weave together in the long finish.
Hunnicutt's 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is a big, opulent wine. Blackberry jam, bittersweet chocolate, licorice, cloves, menthol and espresso give this rich Cabernet tons of intensity. This is an especially flamboyant style, but it all works well.
Lots of lifted blue fruits, leafy herbs, flowery incense, and spice notes emerge from the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, a ripe, sexy, nicely textured 2018 with lots of up-front appeal. It has a touch of chewy tannins, but there's ample fruit and richness. Enjoy bottles over the coming 5-7 years or so.
