  • 1987 Dunn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 92 Points

    USA, California, Napa Valley

    In a "guess old world/new world" blind flight against 2001 Pavie. Not surprisingly, this was my old world guess - left bank Bordeaux. Still very youthful fruit, along with pencil lead, leather; good acidity.

  • 2001 Château Pavie

    France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru

    It is huge, dominated by charred oak, and jam.

    The peanut gallery screams "Cartoonish," but that is not informative. South Park is "cartoonish," as well as crass and over the top. This is not South Park, but more like Beavis & Butthead. It is self-aware and irreverent; it knows that it is crass, simple, and without artistic merit. But it fills its niche well.
