Jeff scored this wine: 93/100

This wine has great appeal to me - intriguing bottle appeal, full aromas and flavors, and a very good price on a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2007 vintage from Hunnicutt Wines is 100% Cabernet and it lifts the quintessential and welcoming Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of red and black fruits that include blackberry, blueberry and plum. The dark fruit flavors give way to cherry cobbler that takes center stage mid palate and combines with a warm oak flavor and just a hint of pepper. The combination of flavors and structured tannins dance in your mouth to leave you with an incredibly long finish that will quickly find you reaching for the bottle again. This is a Cabernet lover's wine. 630 cases produced. ABV 14.7%.

The look alone of this bottle has some incredible merit - gorgeous dark pink grapefruit color with a bottle that looks like it belongs in an art gallery. First of all, if you have never tasted a Rose of Syrah, go out and get a bottle (preferrably this one) tonight. No, this is NOT White Zinfandel - not by a long shot! This is a semi sweet Rose that exhibits a potpourri of flavors that include strawberry, grapefruit, citrus basket, and just a touch of wild raspberries. The flavors are mouth watering and when served chilled (but not cold) this wine will be one of your new best friends. This is quite possibly the best Rose I have tasted in recent memory. 99% Syrah, 1% Mourvedre. ABV: 13.5%. 220 cases produced.
