Honey, melon, a hint of smoke, less acid than expected. I am a novice with white burgundy, but this was unremarkable. I was expecting lots of secondaries, but I didn't get any.

Dark, brooding Pinot, rhubarb, unsweetened black cherry pie, bitterness (oak, stems?) just enough acid - no elegance here. Not a lot of secondaries, holding up but lacking anything special. I will say impressive for Cali Pinot, 10 yrs old.

Dark, dusty, tannic, adequate fruit but needs time for dominant tannins to resolve - hold for 2-3 years.

1994 Dunn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain

5/2/2015 - bonedoc wrote: 96 points

Purchased at release, and stored properly, drank over 4 hrs out of bottle without decant, cork was perfect. Dark purple, no evidence of color loss despite 21 yrs of age. Ripe dark fruits, just enough sweetness to the fruit and acid to balance. This showed like a great left bank Bordeaux, with a little more ripe fruit and a less secondaries - this is a balanced, well made, beautiful wine from an iconic producer . . So good now, but will go another 5-10?? I wish more Napa wines were made in this more balanced style, rather than the 15.8% etoh bombs we drink today.

2007 Azienda Agricola Montevetrano Montevetrano Colli di Salerno IGT

5/2/2015 - bonedoc wrote: NR

Concentrated, rich, but there was an unusual undertone of smoky bacon (best I can describe it) which I've never tasted before in wine - makes me wonder if this is tainted somehow. Will try another bottle and see, but this was not that enjoyable if intended to be this way. (Ha! Just looked up brett and "smoked bacon" is a described aroma - my bet is this was tainted).

This is Pinot cab, very light, lively and acidic compared a typical California style. Missing the ripe, rich, concentrated fruit. Nice wine, just beware of the style.
