Dunn Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon has a wonderfully compelling, bright, vibrant nose of kirsch, black raspberries and fresh blackcurrants with touches of lavender, bay leaves, pencil shavings, wood smoke and tobacco. The palate is medium to full-bodied, concentrated and packed with vivacious red and black fruit layers, supported by firm, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long with an enticing herbal lift.
Intense, rustic and chewy, with tannins that are gritty and bitter, revealing accents of coffee grounds. Needs a wide berth and patience. Drink now through 2030.
