Superb. Ordinarily I would not open a Dunn so young, but we served this at a tasting yesterday. Not a crime to Open now but better if you can wait. Classic Dunn. — 6 days ago

WOTN - I was impressed - besides always being a crowd pleaser this wine always acts like the postman and always delivers

1 hour decant - was not planning to open but we drank the other bottles like thirsty sailors after 90 days on the boat - color has not changed - the smell has gotten even better - the finish was spot on and the taste was impeccable- remarkable- memorable- a true stunner - blue fruits dancing with black and reds fruits - tobacco cassis sweetness from caramel- tamed but striking how this baby keeps growing - drink now if you want but I will not try again for 5 years or more - this Napa cult classic will last 10 years plus and seems to find a way to get better - bravo

Hall Wines

Sacrashe Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

From Hall’s platinum collection. A fine example of balance - the fruit doesn’t hit you in the face like the modern day Napa cabs but but the flavor on palate has all the right notes and finish lasts forever - reminiscent of Napa cabs of yore - classic! — 18 days ago

It took me sometime to relish the flavors and the long finish. I can still taste it this morning !

Grgich Hills Estate

Estate Grown Napa Valley Zinfandel 2015

👁 Nice clarity, medium ruby hue, pink rim variation, strong tearing. No sediment.
.
.
👃 Nose is clean and offers medium intensity red fruit notes that are ripe and jammy, such as cherry, strawberry-rhubarb, plum, along with spicy notes, such as dark baking spices, vanilla, and some green, herbaceous elements. Aromas are developing.
.
.
👄 palate is dry, medium acidity, medium+ tannins, high alcohol, medium+ body, with medium red fruit and baking spice notes, which are consistent with the nose. Medium+ finish with lingering flavors and warmth.
.

Love this producer - Grgich Hills Estate, Napa Valley, Zinfandel. Especially love the Chardonnays, but this was a balanced Zinfandel from Napa. Co-founder of this estate (Miljenko “Mike” Grgich) also crafted the ‘73 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay that won the 1976 Judgement of Paris. Vintage 2015. ABV 14.9%. Made with organic grapes 🍇 Enjoying it as a complement to brats and Brussels sprouts on the grill.

Shafer Vineyards

TD-9 Napa Valley Red Blend

Lovely blend from a classic producer. Agree that it’s a bit astringent which definitely takes away from the balance. Medium acidity and a little grippy until the tannins unwound after an hour. Blue fruit, cocoa, licorice and leather. Cheers! — 16 days ago
