    July 22, 2021 - Opaque ruby. Hefty aroma of ripe blackberry and strawberry, herbaceous note, pungent spices, incense smoke, sage, beautifully integrated sweet toasty oak. Maturing leathery and tobacco notes too.

    Full body at just 13.9%, soft tannins and cleansing acidity, it is actually quite approchable and elegant. I particularly like the mid palate concentration and the inner tension between ripe fruits, earthy minerality and integrated oak. Not sophiscated but utterly delicious!

    A well made Cabernet Sauvignon at reasonable price.

    June 21, 2021 - Decanted 5 hours. Wonderful nose of blackcurrant and raspberry with strong tobacco aromas coming through. A lot of tobacco (in a good way). Cedar. Nose jumps out of the glass. On the palate it's concentrated but not too full bodied / bold. Very fresh. Nice fruit and beautiful secondary / tertiary aromas coming forward. Great wine. Saved the last sip all night just to keep smelling the glass.

    November 28, 2020 - I hadn't tried this vintage in 2 years, so I was excited to check in and see how this wine was doing. Amazing bouquet of holiday spices, red and black fruits, and secondary cedar/oak notes. After about 30 minutes of decanting, I still pick up tar/black fruit on the palate as I did last time, but things are more integrated and the tar isn't quite so noticeable. Definitely a beguiling set of aromas leading to a very smooth mouthfeel. Lots of fun. Drinking nicely right now. I know, you're supposed to save Dunn wines for like 473 years or something, but honestly I am enjoying this wine a lot right now.

    September 24, 2020 - Open and you won’t be disappointed. Clearly many years left. 2014 was a great vintage and every producer’s wine seems to drink well early. Hope my remaining 2 bottles last but suspect they will have a short life.
