Bright medium ruby. Enticing aromas of cassis, blackberry, leather and violet. Juicy, tightly coiled and penetrating, with the sharp delineation of the best examples from Howell Mountain Densely packed but closed in on itself. A very backward but extremely promising wine that finishes with broad, dusty, fine tannins and excellent length. Wait five years on the Napa cab, but give this at least seven or eight. An impressive return to form for Dunn following the cool, late harvests of 1998 through 2000, which were particularly tough on Howell Mountain. 93+ (ST)
Deep, extracted and loaded with fruit, this substantial and very well-constructed Cabernet mixes the sweet, creamy notes of rich oak with the slightly jammy yet lively scents of black currants in its young and fairly generous aromas. In the mouth it boasts the same exciting mix of fruit and oak as well as hints of cola, pencil lead and black walnuts. Superbly balanced and nowhere near a 'ready' wine despite its obvious fruit, this one will easily reward a half decade and more of aging.
It is difficult to find a Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon that can be drunk within ten years of its birth, but the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is seductive and sexy (generally words that cannot be attributed to a Dunn wine until about age 20). This 2001 exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, lots of loamy soil, crushed rock, spring flower, blueberry and black currant liqueur notes and a lush, pure, medium to full-bodied personality. It can be drunk now as well as over the next 12-15 years. (RP)
