Dunn Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

$79.99

  Fantastic new Cabernet releases from Dunn, one of Napa Valley's pioneer wineries previous vintage 95 points from Robert Parker: "The Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is one of the very finest young wines I have ever tasted from Randy Dunn. Layers of dark red fruit, blackberries, flowers, mint and licorice emerge from this seamless, large-scaled wine. This is a rich, opulent 2007 that never abandons its traditional sense of structure. All of the aromas and flavors build beautifully towards the immensely rewarding, intense, seductive finish. This is a dazzling showing from Randy Dunn. The 2007 is atypically open today. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027."

It's has the depth of taste of Darth Vaders exhale. A younger Vader but one senses the profound depth. To bad he left so quickly ...

Who ever said '11 was a bad vintage? Eucalyptus and red peppercorns, delicate for how young it is.

A bit more tertiary on the nose and palate than I would have guessed. Not a negative, but have had older cabs with less evidence of age. Nose is leather, uncut cigar and black fruit. On the mouth the fruit changed from cherry to plum over three hours with spicy wood and earthiness. Really enjoy this. Picking up some 11s as I’m hearing more and more it wasn’t the bad year advertised.

Well @Eric Shanks this is what I'm doing... It's valley fruit, not mountain, but still a fresh plump baby.

Great effort in a challenging vintage. Surprisingly accessible in its youth with some air.

Young but with signs of potential. Definitely decant this baby if your drinking it any time soon. Power developing but very condensed and restrained right now. It's Dunn so it can't be bad!

Drinking extremely well this young, which is atypical for Dunn. Everything a Napa Cab can be....black fruit, minerals, graphite, and smooth tannins......this will be fantastic in another 6 years....
