This was actually my first Napa Valley Dunn as I’ve normally enjoyed their Howell Mountain. Definitely more approachable...blackberry, fig and pipe tobacco aromatics with a darker/charcoal like streak down the middle of the palate. Finish has some dark cocoa dusted dates and a touch of bayleaf.

No detailed notes as we were out to dinner with friends. However, a very classic example of Randy’s Cabernet. This 86 no different. Still in youth form with another 10 plus years of life.

Vibrant and youthful. Lots of red fruit with slight herbal aromas.

Compared to the ‘94, this was much lighter with tons of acid. The two were the WOTNs, but 93 edged it out. Again no obnoxious green notes, just a lively wine who despite its age, is nowhere near its quarter-life crisis.

This was gorgeous. Well integrated tannins, still plenty of fruit, the only green notes were herbal.

Muy joven todavía. Necesita otros 8 años más de añejamiento!
