International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 105

($65) Ruby-red. Cassis, spice and a suggestion of bandaid on the nose. Juicy and penetrating but austere, with assertive blackcurrant and meat flavors. Densely packed and quite backward, showing tougher tannins today than the Napa bottling. Finish exudes a hint of the barnyard. This wine was also quite severe from barrel.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 132

Dunn's normal policy is to select the Napa Cabernet Sauvignon from his barrels right before bottling. Hence what I tasted was a trial blend of this wine. This year produced extremely small crops characterized by extremely cool growing seasons as well as unusually late harvests. Dunn dropped 30% of the crop in order to guarantee ripeness in his vineyard. There is no astringent tannin or vegetal characteristic to be found in this full-bodied, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Dark and intense, with a tight, compact, tightly wound band of earth, anise, leather, game meat, currant and blackberry, revealing layers of complexity and concentration before the tannins and cedary oak clamp down. 2,000 cases made.
