    June 27, 2016 - Dark garnet. Interesting nose of blackberry, old leather, and truffle salt. Opens full and powerful, but recedes quickly with air to a more reserved reticent place. An elegant, mature cab at this point drinking well but not likely to improve further.

    February 5, 2016 - Really in a good place. Hints of blackberry on the nose. Not very earthy at all. Very balanced on the palate with fully integrated tannins. Not as bold, complex or powerful as the Howell mountain. But very fruit friendly and more ready to drink right now. Very nice wine that is awesome to drink

    October 3, 2015 - Opaque dark purple color, licorice, dark cherry and toast on the nose. Intense, rich blackberry thick luscious texture, long and luxurious finish.

    March 15, 2015 - still dark in color. Nose of roasted coffee, black currant and plums. Powerful and big. Still quite tannic but luckily there is enough fruit left for further ageing. What I am missing is complexity and length. All a bit one dimensional even after 2 hours in the decanter. Potential for 92pts is here, just give it a bit more time.

    October 9, 2014 - At Tra Vigne in Napa, first night out. This was brought by Sandy, from a magnum. Dunn always ages well, in my opinion. This was no different, still drinking very young. Decanted for about 30 minutes, drank over two hours. Would benefit from a longer decant.

    Inky purple/ruby color. Black fruits and herbs on the nose. Palate of blackberry, cassis, chocolate, floral/lavender notes. Long and layered finish.

    Right in a zone, drinking well now but my guess has another 10 years ahead of it. Large format maybe longer. Excellent wine from Dunn
