This wine had an unpleasant green note in the mid-palate that didn't go away over two days. Perhaps it's in a dumb phase and will be much better after a few years. Parker commented this was a rare early-drinking Dunn so it could be that it's an unusual vintage.
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.
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
