    April 25, 2020 - Fruit pudding with spice on nose. Well balanced. Medium to full bodied. Surprisingly, mid palate is lacking. Medium plus tannin, medium acid. Decent finish. I was expecting more of this.

    April 24, 2020 - Very much a French style done with powerful mountain fruit. My first Dunn and from what I understand very much what their style. Having said that it was interesting on its own but actually more enjoyable with food.

    French is not my bag baby, but this was pretty good.

    April 23, 2020 - Absolutely beautiful aged Cali cab.....it is perfectly balanced with strong fruit remaining, great color and cab nose. The first 10 minutes has just a tad of pruney raisin on the nose but it leaves and there remains just a perfect aged Napa nose with briar and a hint of pine. Everything has receded and balanced out to leave you with a perfect 'food' wine much like the '05 Haut Bailly I had a few days ago. This will not suffice for those Cali cab fiends who just sit and sip. You must have food. Nice.......

    March 22, 2020 - Decanted 90 minutes. Dark color. Much softer now than the last bottle I drank. This was my last bottle and so wanted to celebrate something during this crazy Coronavirus time. One of the few bright spots of the week. Very layered and structed wine. Excellent balance. Just what you come to expect from Dunn. Excellent bottle as usual.
