    Winemaker's Notes:

    The first wine in the line-up boasted significant complexity with an array of ripe blackberry, black stone fruit and dried blackcurrant flavors. The spicy bouquet showed masses of sweet cardamom, vanilla, dried black tea and dried orange zest. Other secondary characteristics included tanned leather, sweet pipe tobacco, black truffles, forest floor and an iron. Oak tannins are well integrated and the bright acidity lends noticeable lift to the aromatics. Very long and focused.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark and intense, with a tight, compact, tightly wound band of earth, anise, leather, game meat, currant and blackberry, revealing layers of complexity and concentration before the tannins and cedary oak clamp down.

    Dunn's normal policy is to select the Napa Cabernet Sauvignon from his barrels right before bottling. Hence what I tasted was a trial blend of this wine. This year produced extremely small crops characterized by extremely cool growing seasons as well as unusually late harvests.
    Range: 90-93
