At Hunt cellars we assure you that we make every effort in our hand crafted wines to drink now or age well. Our Estate, Destiny Vineyards produces mountain top concentrated fruit with very low yields so each vintage requires finesse and extended barrel aging. The vineyard has multiple terroirs, white calcareous, sandy, loamy soils with great drainage and very little clay strata. The vineyard is planted west to East to enjoy the coastal influences from the Morrow Bay and Templeton gaps as well as the 50 degree diurnal swings which help solidify and intensify varietal flavors. We push the threshold of art against the science which creates amazing results.
We are so proud that our wines are aging so beautifully. We get comments so often from our patrons that they just opened a 2000 Cabernet, Merlot, 2001 Syrah, 97 Petite Sirah, 2004 Maestro or Rhapsody in Red and how wonderful they tasted.
Our tasting room features some of our 2003 Merlot, Zinfandel, Cabernet and blends to the amazement of folks who have a hard time believing California wines can last this well. We feel it is a result of our “Grand Reserve” program which means our big red wines are barrel aged 3 year and bottle 2 or more years prior to release. We could show you a 2005 or 2003 Cabernet and most folks guess it is a 2010 or 2012 vintage.
