    July 13, 2021 - This bottle was outstanding from the get go. It does not seem to require three more years in the bottle as the drinking window suggests. Bordeaux like elegance. Loved this wine.

    June 25, 2021 - Aging well, needs a hour in the decanter and then flawless. 93 out of the bottle, but just wait. Mint, dusty cassis, pencil lead, classic Dunn profile of reigned in pristine fruit and increasing complexity.

    May 31, 2021 - Second time enjoying this wine in the last year. It's fantastic now and, if similar to Dunn HMs from the 1980s and early 1990s, will continue to get even better. My prior bottle of 2001 was magical; this one was merely great. If those are the two possible outcomes from drinking now, you can't go wrong.

    May 27, 2021 - A big, complex wine that still has oak to resolve so not showing its best yet in my opinion. Rich black fruits with graphite minerals and substantial but supple tannins. Needs more age but plenty of potential here. 91+

    May 10, 2021 - This wine was clean.... no brett or funk as is often present from this house. Gorgeous dark purple fruits, blackberry preserves, mulberry, herbs, great concentration and a long finish. Blind would be comparable to a first growth Bordeaux. Bravo!
