Randy Dunn: Cabernet “Dunn” The Right Way

Forget about it. There is no way to describe the kind of taste experience a bottle of Dunn provides to the lucky folks who have the means to afford this incredible wine. I bought the 1999 and recently enjoyed it over a great meal at Bouchon in Yountville. If you are a stickler for detail or tasting notes Napa Valley Wine Exchange has a nice quick write up.

Rogue’s take on this wine. Purchased in 2002 for $65. Opened Feb 5, 2008.

Taste: Heavy Caymus like strength, Silver Oak like fruit, with Groth like length. The best bottle of Cabernet I have ever enjoyed with apologies to the 1994 Caymus Sp Select; 1982 BV G LT; and the 1994 Shafer Special Select.

Alcohol: Very

After Effect: Full very full so do not go overboard with food or drink before enjoying this titan

Cost: If available at the restaurant, $200+

Value: If you have the cash it is worth every penny
