Dark, wet earth, and black pepper on the nose, spiced black fruit, with layers of earth, cedar, and spice

Destroyed. Not corked, not maderized, not excess sulphur, not va, maybe excess brett? Not sure what happened here but this wine smelled like a bad mussel or oyster. Beyond awful, not sure what happened here but this is one of, if not, my favorite producers in napa. Very unexpected and disappointing.

Something really special. Brooding and tannic. But light and acidic. Napa needs more wines like this

Very serious player, my gosh those tannins will rip a few teeth. Very well poised.

What a way to celebrate a 25th wedding anniversary - with a 25 year old cab!

Band aids, green peppers, raspberry, tobacco, very forward tannins still, lots of grip, but so good. Couple more decades of life I'm sure. And do or die Caps, already in the hole 1-0 #letsgocaps #rockthered #capspens #dunnvineyards #howellmountain #playoffs

Highly structured, needs a decade or longer more in the cellar to fully resolve. Excellent balance, touch of brett for those that are highly sensitive.
