Dunn Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2005


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Nearing maturity, with lovely suppleness to ripe blackberry, Chanterelle mushroom and dried herb undertones. There's excellent depth of flavor in the midpalate and polished tannins that tighten up in the mineral-tinged finish. This has a smooth mouthfeel that stands gracefully on its own and the structure to beautifully complement food (dry aged beef will be ideal). Drinks pretty well now but will benefit from another year or two in the cellar and will hold strong through at least 2022.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is gorgeous. It is a soft, caressing wine laced with expressive dark fruit, blackberries, spices, leather and flowers, all of which come together beautifully in the glass. This is a surprisingly soft, open young wine with lovely inner perfume and a mid-weight structure that makes it approachable, even today. It is a great starting point for readers who are new to the Dunn wines. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2025.

International Wine CellarBright ruby-red. Wild, inviting aromas of blackcurrant, blueberry, pepper, spices and game. Sweet but not particularly fleshy, offering a juicy character to the flavors of crushed berries, pepper and spices. Nicely suave cabernet with a firm edge of acidity and ripe, building tannins.
