Hunnicutt George III Beckstoffer Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Wine EnthusiastFrom the Beckstoffer Georges III vineyard in the heart of the appellation, this 100% varietal wine is immense in lushness, plush and alive in cinnamon, red and black berry and smoke. Soft tannins provide a lift and an enjoyable evolution to the finish, with a bite of heft on the last sip. This should cellar well through 2020-2022.
Wine SpectatorA rich, juicy expression of layered flavors, with tiers of blackberry, wild berry, black licorice, cedary oak, loamy earth and dried herb. Full-blown, gutsy and tannic, but the finish shows substance, giving this a long, lingering aftertaste. Drink now through 2026. 264 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon BGIII Vineyard in Rutherford has a beautiful purity of sweet crème de cassis fruit, dusty earthy undertones, a floral note and forest floor. Rich full-bodied, complex and spicy, this could turn out to be one of the best of the Cabernet Sauvignons from Hunnicutt.
