A Napa cab I can get behind. Obviously incredibly young but shows great notes of smoked meat, black fruit and boat loads of minerality. This is 10 years from ready. Easily.

Dunn 2012 Howell - this one is more round but still very dry. I think this was my favorite of the group. Needs a lot of time. 9.0+. Bought two of these

Solid, spicy, hints of currents and cherries. Perfect for our late birthday celebration.

Tons of dark fruit and vanilla. Some brighter cherry notes coming through. Fairly well integrated tannins for such a young wine. Delicious

I was blown away by this. Dark purple color. Ripe blackberry and black cherry, strong cedar box, tobacco leaves, liquorice, hint of vanilla and herb, reminds me of Pauillac. Great structure and mid palate, silky, med-high tannic, very enjoyable. Some ages will promote this wine a lot but now it's drinking beautifully already. 13.9% alc. 2012 vintage

Velvety smooth, zero bite, complex yet round in flavor. Definitely allow to breath after decanting. Paired with filets and prime rib at Prhyme

Obviously very young but made in the style of old school Napa cabs. Great depth, length and structure but very enjoyable even at this young age. Another solid effort from Dunn
