Bright strawberry and blueberry character here. Full and fruit-forward, yet showing fine tannins. Silky with gorgeous purity of fruit. Savory and yummy. Why wait?
The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is one of the most open, young Dunn Cabernets I have ever tasted. Sweet red berries, cinnamon, wild flowers, cedar and tobacco are all laced together in a supple, racy Cabernet that is already drinking well. The 2011 is quite delicate today, almost uncharacteristically so. Once again, the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was made entirely from Howell Mountain fruit. Randy Dunn's 2011s are surprisingly open, supple and expressive at this stage. Dunn describes 2011 as a year in which the spring frost took with it a considerable amount of the crop. Even though yields are low, the 2011s speak much more to finesse than power. This is a rare vintage that holds considerable early and medium-term appeal, which as Dunn fans know, is a bit unusual for this typically tannic, structured Cabernets. (AG)
The dense purple 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa offers a big sweet kiss of crème de cassis and blackberry fruit, underbrush and subtle oak. The tannins are soft and the wine ripe, medium to full-bodied and ideal for drinking now and over the next 12-15 years. Alcohol, regardless of what the label says, is 13.7%. (RP)
