Full throttle Napa Valley; 92pts WE

Hunnicut is a project put together by Justin Stephens of D.R. Stephens and Kirk Venge who makes the wines. Kirk with his father Nils are Napa winemaking royalty. ( Nils made the first 100pt Parker Napa Cab). There single vineyard cabs get monster scores (95 to 97pts Parker) and sell for way over $100 a btll. They also make an insider red called CUTT that for the money is one of the finest I have tasted from Napa this year. The wine is red blend that varies each vintage. Only 325 cases are made and the wine is quintessential Napa. In true California style, this wine may have a bit of a swagger, but what can we say, it loves an audience. The nose is bright and beautiful, led by instantly gratifying notes of blackberry and blueberry preserves and uplifted by a comforting core of caramel, vanilla and hints of rich earth. On the palate, the entry is abundant and fruit driven, continuing the promised berry theme well into the mid palate. The finish brings hints of Christmas spices and sweet oak that has a pleasing mouthwatering effect. This is a savory, full-bodied red blend from famed winemaker Kirk Venge. Powerful Napa Valley fruit is matched with heavy notes of sweet American and French oak, but this wine maintains good structure in spite of its high amplitude.
