Next to Heitz’s Martha’s Vineyard, this is Napa Valley’s original cult wine and still remains an ultimate collectible…..And luckily for us older guys is becoming more drinkable at release as Randy’s son Mike has made his influence known and appreciated.
“Sage and bay leaf notes lead the way, followed quickly by black currant and bitter plum paste flavors. The finish is framed by singed cedar and alder details, with a lingering sanguine echo. Needs a little time to soften fully, but everything is in place. Best from 2023 through 2038. 2,800 cases made.” 95 points, Wine Spectator (November 15th – 2020) — JM
This iconic winery has some pretty stunning Cabernets for those with patience and cold cellars. Their estate on Howell Mountain now extends to 34 acres of vines. Randy Dunn’s son, Mike, is now running the show and may be picking slightly riper than his dad would have done.
