    Immense and dark ruby-black in color, the nose offers mature currant, coffee, sage and dusty berry and anise flavors that have some youthful nuances. Complex and concentrated, it's well-focused and appealing, though it veers into tannic territory on the finish.

    Last Tasted 10/93 Extremely backward, closed, hard, tannic, and unyielding, this behemoth of a wine exhibits a saturated purple color, a nondescript bouquet, enormously rich, concentrated flavors, and a boat load of tannin. Unless you are a masochist, do not touch a bottle before the turn of the century.

    Tasted like it could have been a 1996 - RD's wines may never age! Also tasted much like an middle-aged Bordeaux. Green pepper, saddle leather, a ton of spice, saw dust, mint, and just hints of dried fruit. Very soft tannin structure.

Dunn Vineyards is located east of St. Helena in the town of Angwin on Howell Mountain in Napa Valley. In 1972 Randy and Lori purchased the original vineyard property. The winery was established in 1979, with the first harvest of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. In 1981, the first release offered consumers 660 cases of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Howell Mountain vineyards. In 1982, Dunn also released their first Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

Currently Dunn Vineyards produces around 5000 cases of extremely age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon.
