Community Tasting Note

  • audicfa wrote: 92 points

    September 3, 2011 - Day 1 - Popped and poured. I really want to like this wine because I think it's great what Dunn Vineyards is trying to achieve. There is lack of the traditional spicy California cab fruit in this one. Day 2 and it is opening up nicely. On the nose, menthol, matchbox, burnt logs, musty old house, wet concrete, ozone ( smell just before it rains). On the palette, mouth coating with some nice but not big fruit in the middle. A solid 30 second finish with some tannin but not overwhelming. A fascinating wine. I understand 99 was a tough vintage. I've had the 94 Napa Valley and the 04 Howell Mountain with both exhibiting a touch more ripe fruit. I have 05, 06 and 07 Howell Mountain on order and am looking forward to experiencing them with some friends!
