WA 95 Pts Big, dark and juicy. There is an element of wildness that runs through the wine. Graphite, licorice, tar and smoke are just some of the nuances that add complexity. The 2006 boasts superb purity from start to finish.

Deep ruby core with a purple-tinged rim. Seriously complex, with a dense and enveloping red fruit core that shows hints of cranberry, sandalwood, dark chocolate, espresso bean, and vanilla. Rich and creamy on the palate, with a piercing jolt of deep ... Cory Gowan. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2006 Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 750ml

($75) Bright full medium ruby. Expressive nose offers cassis, blackberry, black raspberry and leather scents lifted by a minty nuance. Lush and fine-grained but with a firm edge of acidity and menthol and minty nuances energizing the rich dark berry ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

The 2006 shows gorgeous depth as it opens up in the glass. Dark fruit, licorice, smoke and tar are some of the notes that flesh out in this broad-shouldered Cabernet Sauvignon. A creamy, textured finish rounds things out in style.

Deep medium ruby. Sexy, inviting aromas of dark berries, licorice pastille, spicecake and leather. Densely packed but light on its feet, with good sweetness and breadth to the black fruit flavors. Distinctly round for a young cabernet from this produ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2006 Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

This Cabernet begins with a supple mouthfeel and features fine concentration to dark berry flavors, with persistent earthiness adding interest. Dried and fresh herb accents and nicely integrated cedary, chocolaty oak intermingle with the fruit. There are plenty of solid tannins and this will certainly benefit from at least three or four more years in the cellar. If opened now, it will show best with lamb, venison or duck.
