Call me crazy, but this is a wonderful Merlot! I’ve had it in my cellar for 10 years and decided to pull it out. I did not decant or let it go more than 1/2 hour. Fabulous! Balanced, great fruit and among the best Merlot’s I’ve had. Go figure.

Maybe it needs to decant. Definitely not a pop and pour wine.

It took a little while to open up. I would recommend at least 1/2 hour. Once it did, it was Dunn at it's best. Beautiful balance and fruit... really a classic California Cab.

Second bottle rocked. I had previously put this at an 89 but this bottle was just beautiful. Nice acid and balance. I hope the rest are consistent with this one!

Not loving the wine. Maybe past it’s prime. Too sweet, not having any depth. My family thinks the wine at the Delta club is on par.

Not a bad little Pinot! At this price point, I'm good with this wine all day long. Beautiful fruit and classic Willamette Valley experience. Good deal.

Maybe it needs more time but it just lacks complexity and is too tannic at finish.

Fabulous. Can stand another 3-5 years in the bottle but if you let it sit for an hour it opens up beautifully.

Dunn just keeps performing and getting better. It could have gone another 10+ years, but it drank just beautifully after 1/2 hour of decanting. I actually think this 2008 approaches the 2007! Great value.

I realize that I'm rating this higher than average, but i think it deserves it. I aerated it and let it sit for an hour. Very lovely.

Ok, I'm going out on a limb here. I'm giving this totally lovely wine a 96 because it absolutely deserves it. Balanced, big, beautiful. It is just better than I remember it. Worth every penny. Go Luc.

This may possibly be the finest Chard I've ever had. Perfectly balanced and drinking beautifully. I may be under-rating this lovely wine.

Very interesting. I'm not a great fan of Shiraz, but we visited the winery and bought a case. We put it down until now. Ok, here's the deal: for a Shiraz, I thought it was probably the best one I've had. That said: give me a $20 cab and it blows it away. My son refused to drink it and gave me his glass. So, in conclusion, we didn't dig it.

It is classically Dunn, and drinking beautifully. More Bordeaux like in nature; brilliant flavors and fabulous fruit. What's the bad part? That was my last 2003!
