David Hunt, owner and winemaker, spent years looking for the perfect venue for his wines and eventually settled on a uniquely beautiful property of over 550 acres in the foothills and mountains of Creston. This area met David’s criteria for topography, soil composition, unparalleled beauty, and ideal terroirs – its varied elevations and mineral soil composites mirror some of the world’s great wine region.

 

Hunt Cellars 2011 “Encore” Blend

Grape(s): Cabernet & Cab Franc

Region: Paso Robles, Ca

Tasting Notes:

Aromatics of cassis, cherries, and plums mingle with campfire spice, vanilla, and dark chocolate on the nose. A sip delivers flavors of ripe plum, red cherry, and sweet currant that interweave with traces of smoky vanilla, violets, and chocolate. Quite complex and rather silky, sip a glass on its own or pair with roast duck.

Hunt Cellars 2012 “Let it Be” Grenache

Grape(s): 100% Grenache

Region: Paso Robles, Ca

Tasting Notes:

Strawberries, ripe figs, and plums exude from a glass. The palate interweaves fruit flavors of plum, cherry, and fig with lovely clove and minerals suggestions. A delicate yet still fairly complex wine, the tannins and acidity are quite mellow, making grilled salmon a good choice for your accompanying meal.
