Love these young Dunn Napa Valleys. More modern style- more jam less tannin but still balanced. — 7 hours ago

Long Shadows Vintners Collection

Feather Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Made by superstar winemaker, Randy Dunn, of Dunn Vineyards, the 2017 ‘Feather’ by Long Shadows is a masterful effort from this exciting warmer vintage in Washington. Once on the nose there is a lovely round core of toasty oak that wraps around the rich dark fruits, sagebrush and chocolate fudge aromatics that all meld in the glass. The palate is silky smooth, revealing a round and generous mouthfeel. The seamless effect created mid-palate is utterly fantastic. Black currants and blackberry cordial dance with shades of Black Forest Cake and espresso bean on this highly complex palate. This finishes long with dark fruits and a beam of minerality. While enticing to savor now, the 2017 ‘Feather’ will have a long life ahead of it. If enjoying in its youth, be sure to afford a two hour decant prior to enjoying. Drink 2021-2040- 95 — a month ago

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Bottle enjoyed last night. Notes are from memory today.

While 2010 is not my favorite Napa vintage, it was not bad. In many 2010’s I’ve had, the structure, texture and body are just not quite all there. However, Howell Mountain wines, for me, faired better.

There are a number of good Howell Mountain producers, Dunn being one of my favorites. I think Ladera Vineyards is one of the more underrated Howell Mountain producers. Especially, at a Costco price of around $45.

The blue fruits that shine in Howell Mountain wines are always unmistakable. Blueberries, mulberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, blackberries, raspberry cola, light spice, soft leather, saddle-wood, lavender and violets. Beautiful acidity. The structure is good. The body round and elegant. The length, tension and balance just now coming into its own. Still needs a few more years to hit its peak. The finish is soft, round, elegant and beautiful. Lasts full two minutes.

Recent special re-release. Tons of life and tannic tart cherry cola left. Dunn wax sucks but I’m here to tell you that 27 year old Dunn wax really sucks. My wife said it had too much stink and demanded a fruit bomb. — 13 days ago

Long Shadows Wineries

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! — 8 months ago

A wonderful tasting put on by Classic Wine Storage featuring Long Shadows Winery. If you aren’t familiar with these wines, they are phenomenal WA state wines that are made by the likes of Randy Dunn, Phillipe Melka, Michel Rolland, John DuVall, and more.

This wine is made by John Duvall of Penfolds. Dark overripe berries, smoke, cassis, currant and some smoked bacon. Not the northern Rhône/Cayuse like funky Syrahs...this is more Napa Syrah that is rich, structured and voluptuous. Notes of violets and caramel. One of my favorites of the night.

@Mark Flesher i wonder what the differences are between this and the 14. Good price on winebid for it.

Both seem to have similar praise given. 14 seems to be meatier and 15 with less meat and more fruit.

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.
