Bottle flawed - not drinkable.
Lots of sediment; cloudy.

88 points
Opened decanted 45 min before drinking
Dark red ruby red to the edges; mild nose of tobacco, cacao(
bitter chocolate); flavors of brambles/berries, tart cherries; tight red berry flavors,cranberry, assertive acidity, over 90 min acidity became more noticeable, fruit more tart; held up very well on the end with crisp palate cleansing fresh berry flavors; med long finish.

I didn't think it a disappointing wine, just lacking bouquet ( the 82 Jumelles tasted at the same time was much better in that regard). To give it a 90+ score I would look for more concentration too. Hope you enjoy your bottle!

2005 Dunn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain
1/26/2013 - Jhcwine Does not like this wine:
88 points
Nose - tannin, meat, not alot of fruit. Palette - prunes, meat, some tannin, some fruit. Not my style.

    2/22/13, 5:50 PM - "not my style" but still 90 pts??

  • vinojones commented:

    2/23/13, 11:24 AM - JHC- my comment was not about Dunn but rather the disconnect between a score of 90 which is generally considered to be a very desirable wine and your "does not like" . I have nothing against you not liking that bottle, or any wine, but I think the score should more closely match the description-- how about an 82 or 75 score? John Gilman, a professional wine critic as example often scores wine he is critical of, or not his style, in the 70's.
