Since my first two bottles I brought to dinner were crap I had to order something off the list . Painfully young but has the potential to be a great bottle .

On the nose, bramble fruits of; wild blackberries, plum, raspberries & sweet dark cherries. Green pepper, vanilla, salted caramel, dark soils and fresh & dry dark florals. The body is medium lean, tannins are extremely soft & round. Wild blackberries, plum, raspberries, sweet dark cherries, green pepper, black oil, wood shavings, dry stone, black cherry cola, vanilla, salted caramel, dark soils and fresh & dry dark florals. The acidity pours over the palate. The finish is not quite there but Randy's wines are 20 plus year wines. However, it's well balanced with 50-50 fruit and earth. Only concern here was the green bell pepper. Photo tour of; their Howell Mountain vines, barrel rooms, low yield vines and the legendary Randy Dunn.

Dunn Howell has never disappointed. This holds true for the new 2013. The climate that year shows through in the marked black berry fruit presence. The tannins are ever present and will help keep this beauty for 20 years to come!

Deep and dark ruby red. Thick, rich and rounded nose with tons of layers; bramble berries, twigs, baking spices, cinnamon sticks, black and blue fruits. Heavy tannins (8/10) with a beautiful texture, not silky but a little gritty to match this powerful wine. Big and full palate with dark fruits, black cherries, twigs and a little earthy. Full bodied with a super long finish. Drink from 2019 till 2048. (94+)

Must decant for about 45 minutes but wow - inky chewy explosion in your mouth. Worth the extra coin.
