Bag yourself this highly sought-after Rutherford AVA Cabernet Sauvignon at a ridiculous knock down price. As with earlier sell-out vintages, Hunt McKay Cab 2011 is handcrafted using 100% Cabernet grapes from renowned Morisoli Vineyard. The result? A vivacious wine with blackberry, black cherry and currant aromas, and lustrous red fruit that delivers waves of flavor, from dark cocoa to licorice with a sweet tobacco finish.
About the Winery
After two highly rated, sold-out vintages (94pts WA on 2010 vintage), this Cabernet Sauvignon by Hunt McKay tore out of the gates to much acclaim and recognition from Robert Parker and Wine Advocate. Created by winemaker Michael Trujillo, Hunt McKay 2011 is made using 100% Cabernet grapes from the same Morisoli Vineyard in Rutherford, Napa as the earlier vintages.
Hunt McKay winery, run by three friends, Karen, Danna and Michael, recently rebranded as KaDieM Cellars—the phonetic spelling of the three friends’ initials (KDM). Its logo shows three wine glasses entwined as a symbol of their friendship, families, and a toast to their commitment to truly brilliant winemaking.
About the Vintage
“ was a challenging vintage, but the best wines will surprise readers for their aromatic intensity, finesse, balance and sense of place. Most importantly, 2011 is a beautiful vintage through which to discover what makes Napa Valley’s best terroirs so compelling.” Antonio Galloni,Vinous
From a highly sought-after source of Cabernet, this is classically oaky and dusty, a sophisticated take on the grape, dense and soft in waves of black cherry. With medium weight that picks up steam on the milk-chocolate finish, it's an impressive sipper or worthy companion to steak and potatoes. ~92, WE
