Barely drinkable as a table wine. Rough finish; tastes like a really bad house wine at Chili's.

California Cabernets (Vin Vino Wine, Palo Alto, CA): dark red with purple hues in the color. spicy, dark fruit, riverbed rocks, green bean, faint ginger cola, on the nose. blackberry, cherry, clove, bitter chocolate, on the palate. light mouth-feel, with low acid and tannins on the finish.

2010 Dunn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain

Needs more time. Ripe cherry, blueberry, oak. A bit acidic and overly sweet on the finish. Not really coming together despite a long decant. Disappointing for $70, would try again in 5-10 years.

    The Napa cab sounds more like $70.

    If you don't like it I understand why at this stage, lay it down for 10 years and they are much better.
