Dunn Vineyards

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 1991

Deep tawny color with a red, scarlet center. Opaque. Earthy nose with notes of red and black fruits, leather saddle, cuban cigar and some dry brush. Silky and smooth in the mouth. In a great spot. — 2 days ago

Dunn Vineyards

Trailer Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Första vingården kultklassade Dunn planterade. 2013 var sista året innan vingården planterades om. En rikedom av smaklager och texturer. Blåbär, potpurri, kött, söta kryddor, mörk jord, bläck, blyerts. Fyller upp hela munnen och är superfinkornig. Otämjt och robust, men en naturlig skönhet. Minnesvärt. — 9 months ago

Wow, I have not heard of this wine. Their other wines are excellent, too.

@Ron R I believe Dunn’s Trailer Vineyard was replanted after the 2013 vintage. Might been the first vineyard they planted in the 70s, but not sure. Really great wine regardless.

@Adam Gäfvert, but the price!!! They want your “first born”. I may not be approaching it anytime soon 😕

Caldwell Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

This a chewy traditional cab but more so. Dunn sneaked in Fancy smoothness. Very subtle and extraordinary. Wine is extraordinary. At 75 I’m not aging wine. I’m not sure of the benefits of aging here. This the the good stuff. — 6 months ago

@Hugh O'Riordan I am trying to institute your philosophy about aging and I am not in my 70’s but getting there 😅

@Ron R diito . My younger drinking companions laugh at that concept . I guess folks don’t like thinking about “mortality”

@Ira Schwartz, you are just being pragmatic! I’m up there, and have plenty 00 old world wines, but wifey doesn’t enjoy them any more. Cali = instant gratification!

Six Pinots, all made by Ed Kurtzman, of August West and Roar fame who also consults to Freeman and Mansfield Dunn. Ed joined our tasting. More fruity, slightly reduced. My #2. — a year ago

Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2018

Galloni seems to have it out for SLH Pinots (he also panned Liquid Farm’s recent releases) and I couldn’t disagree more. Earthy, smoked meat, hitting its stride and could go years more. Ed Kurtzman has made wine for Freeman, Roar, August West and Mansfield Dunn and his own label, Sandler, is just fine. And QPR to boot. — 2 months ago

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Wow. Really good. We also opened a 2005 Dunn Family Wine. This 2017 was amazing compared to the Dunn that we love as well. For the money Provenance. — a year ago
