  • Friday Night Double Blind Tasting $40+ (Bin 75): Dark cloudy core with paler bricking rim; sweet tobacco, red currant, licorice, aged, softened, green pepper, Bordeaux-like, a bit of glycerin says New World from the nose; dusty, rich mouthfeel, classic Bordeaux styles CA; very easy to drink, beautiful wine.

  • Nice bottle but nothing phenomenal. Decanted a couple hours. Definitely not anything to blow the mind! I've had a few vintages of both this and the Howell Mtn and can't say they stand out any more than any other 89-91 point Cabs I've had. I won't be rushing out for my next bottle.

  • I opened and decanted this and a Howell Mtn about four hours before dinner. The Howell crumbled but the Napa cork was perfect, as it were a two year old! Neither this or the Howell showed any sign of aging. Very Bordeaux like with dark inky garnet/purple colored, medium to full bodied, complex and balanced black berry fruits with tones of lead pencil, tea, tobacco and hints of cedar and leather with acidity turning to modest tannins on the moderate finish.

  • Deep dark red center, dark red rim with clear signs of age.
    Sweet red currants and cherries, blackberries, dusty scrub, smoked duck, a little canned corn, rubbed tobacco.
    Smooth with supporting tannins and acid, black olives and blackberries, mineral, cranberries and dried cherries, blueberries, creamy, smoky, fantastic balance and length.
    Great old world style Napa cab from Dunn - a classic. Fruit, structure, balance, persistence, ability to age for another 5 to 10 years.
    Second day: rounded out, intense cherries and blackberry taste combined with mint and graphite, great length.

  • Wow! Big wine with lots of cedar and vanilla with toasty blackberry and spice notes. Hard to believe its 17 years old! Still has years to go - wish I had more.
