Monthly WTF group recap. Theme this month was “bring something special”. Normally we taste all of the wines blind, but we decided to do a relaxed night with amazing wines at a great restaurant. Spectacular evening!

One of my favorite producers, and likely just entering its prime window (where I imagine it will hold for a decade or so). The profile here is dense yet soft and round. Gorgeous aromatics of baked fig and ripe blackberry with pencil shavings and cassis. Black cherry jam, graham cracker, violets and dusty traits on the palate. Such a delicious wine right now. Thanks

Fun afternoon at Classic with great company. Glad you could join us Bryan.

This is unicorn wine, ladies and gentlemen. Never thought I’d get to try one of these as they are super rare (and stupid expensive). Old vines, actually, as this was the original vineyard Randy planted back in the ‘70s. Sadly, ‘13 was the last vintage of this as it was replanted. It’s undoubtedly Dunn in its power and structure with an added sweet, velvet mid palate and finish. Charcoal/smoke, roasted blue and black fruit, and clove. Finish is just a mind-blowing evolution of potpourri, baked berry pie and savory notes. Deserves a table to its own and a few more years to grow up to its potential. Awesome stuff

Elevation Howell Mountain Old Vine Petite Sirah 2013

Howell Mt fruit, this comes from Mike Dunn, son of Randy. Whole different varietal from what his dad does but similar in that he makes both a Napa valley floor/foot hills and a mountain fruit version. I prefer the Howell Mt but that’s my bias. Ripe Black fruits, black cherry, meaty, sage herbal notes, firm tannins but I bet that they’d open up with a little time open. Would love to grab a few to age. — 4 months ago

I was disappointed when I opened this a year and a half ago. Maybe it was going through a dumb phase, but it wasn’t doing much for me.

Long Shadows Vintners Collection

Feather Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from the Summit View in the Walla Walla Valley as well as Dionysus, Weinbau and Den Hoed Benches Vineyards. Made by legendary winemaker, Randy Dunn, of Dunn Vineyards fame, this reveals dense core, with an inviting nose of crème de cassis, Turkish coffee, red bell pepper, with hints of white pepper and sagebrush. The palate unveils a silky texture and a beautiful mouthfeel. Decadent blueberry compote, mocha, black tea, anise and sagebrush flavors all impress. The gorgeous bright acidity adds to the enjoyment here. Balanced and rich, this stunning wine will cellar well for the next two decades. While it is delicious now, try to resist this for at least two more years. Drink 2020-2040-95 — 8 months ago

Feather Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Made by Randy Dunn with Washington state grapes! Old world style and not at all a Napa fruit bomb! Quite structured but still a bit tannic.. needs more time in the bottle or a 1-2 hour decant! It got better and opened up more as the evening went on! — 2 months ago
