    Winemaker's Notes:

    Highly concentrated, full-bodied and generous. Almost jammy fruit. Lighter in acidity than other vintages, this wine impresses with it's roundness and voluptuousness of structure. The fruit tannins are firm and present. The wine finishes very long.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Rich with surprisingly soft tannin, this dense plum/ruby/purple-colored 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits lots of briary mountain fruit, blackberries, blueberries and cassis, outstanding purity, full-bodied power and nicely integrated tannin. There is no evidence of toasty oak to be found in this beauty from Randy Dunn. Drink it now or cellar it for 15+ years. It finished at 13.8% natural alcohol.

    Bright ruby. Very tight and high-pitched on the nose, hinting at cassis, minerals and graphite.Then lush, sweet and impressively concentrated, with densely packed flavors of kirsch, currant and minerals and noteworthy inner-palate energy. Finer-grained than the Napa bottling, with better integration of acids and tannins. Finishes sappy and very long, with a chewy, palate-staining texture.This has delivered on the promise it showed from barrel.

    Big and bold, great nose, tight finish. Needs a lot of air even though it's 10 years old. Let it decant for 30 minutes and enjoy with a red meat dish. Stands alone well also.
