    January 2, 2022 - Limited notes (New Years Eve). Fantastic Dunn HM. A little more angular than the 2003 from Christmas Day, but still drinking very well. More improvement to come over the next 5 years. No rush.

    December 25, 2021 - Simply amazing! Just 17 years old! Opened for Xmas dinner to have with rack of lamb. But just sniffing and tasting all on it's own it's wonderful!
    Way more approachable than most "young" Dunn Howell Mountain Cabs! Delicious!

    May 29, 2021 - Wonderfully evolved at such a young age for a Dunn Cab. Black cherry oil and chocolate with licorice. Broad and rich palate with soft, ripe tannins (likely due to hot vintage). I will probably drink the rest of these over the next two years. Seem perfect right about now.

    May 23, 2021 - PnP and ready to rock from the start. Only ever so slightly bricking on the edges deep dark crimson at the core

    Forest floor earthy mushrooms red fruit on the initial knows definitely old-school Ludens cough drops red cherries simply delicious oak and tannins completely integrated

    Dunn is just simply consistent year on year on year these are some of my favorite wines in Napa Valley, and the 2004 is definitely evidence of that

    94 on open, 96 after 90 min air in bottle
