    1. Carmen Sam

      Dunn 2016 lacks complexity and longevity, disappointing for a Cabernet.

    2. Richard Foster

      Young Dunn, decant for 4 hours. Red berry, black cherry, herbal, light wood. Cool climate nose. Integrated tannins. Pure elegance with potential for complexity. Next one in a decade.

    3. Marion Salinas

      Decadent nose, ripe fruit, full body. Long finish. Ages well.

    4. Kathy Lancaster

      Classic Dunn tannins, notes of cedar and cigar from oak, restrained fruit. Best enjoyed from 2030.

    5. Karen Barlow

      New vintages: open, ripe, round. Smooth, silky, Napa style. Old world Bordeaux style gone.

    6. James Pitre

      Impressive dark red wine with a strong nose and abundant blackberry, currant, and blueberry flavors. Satisfying finish. Ideal for aging; will be exceptional in 5-6 years.

    7. Lois Pope

      Delicate, vibrant, classic.

    8. Wilbur Avila

      Deep, dark red wine with a medium body. Pleasant nose, black cherry and blackberry fruit. Nice finish. Will improve with age.

    9. Perry Sadat

      Vibrant ruby hue. Aromas of black cherry, red raspberry, and grape stem. Dry, light-bodied, with refreshing acidity. Medium tannins. Tastes of red vines, grape stem, and black cherry.

    10. Ross Whitten

      Dunn ’17: Sweet tobacco, ripe cherries, mineral accents, blueberries, crushed violets. Full-bodied, supple, with grippy tannins. Long, gorgeous. Decanted 3 hrs. Drink 2024-2037. Dunn shines.

    11. Alfonso Mcguffey

      Deeply colored with ripe black fruit. Balanced tannins and acidity. Subtle oak presence. Excited to see how it ages.

    12. Joseph Loya

      Intensely bold (13.9%) wine with rich black cherry and cassis flavors. Classic cabernet finish.

    13. Kathleen Word

      Dunn Napa wine: Surprisingly great with lovely dark fruits, amazing balance, and a classy touch. Drinking young, but promising.

    14. Richard Torres

      Approachable and polished, with ripe fruits. A great early drinker.

    15. Doris Varney

      Dark and enticing, this wine bursts with black cherry, blackberry, and plum flavors. Hints of anise and sage add savory notes. Medium acidity and muscular tannins suggest aging potential.

    16. Theresa Lewis

      Dunn property in Napa Valley, November 2022. Cola, vanilla, black plum palate. Fine tannins, smooth mouthfeel. Approachable and very nice.

    17. Howard Fleming

      Dark, deep, and alluring. Prominent yet polished tannins. Tasted at Heinen’s – 91+.

    18. Kelly Lieberman

      Dunn Cabernet 17: Pure, balanced, and seamless. Ripe valley fruit with velvety coating, briar, bush, and cassis notes. Steady prices make it a great value. 20-second finish. Superb.

    19. Greg Okeefe

      Delightful mini version of Dunn HM. Complex flavors, slightly thinner. Impressive fruit, earthy shades. Burst of black cherry, sweet coffee on the palate. Long finish with dense tannins. Delicious and easy to love.

    20. Toni Jenny

      Perfectly balanced oak spice and dark fruit, with a dry finish and a subtle hint of green olive.

    21. Garrett Kovach

      A delicious Napa Cabernet

    22. Charles Gonzales

      This Dunn Napa is a classic cabernet with supple structure, medium to full body, and great aging potential.

    23. Candy Custer

      Delicious wine with ripe dark berries, sweet spices, and beautiful acidity. 94-95.

    24. Elvin Brown

      Review: Earthy nose, minimal fruit. Palate: Smooth creme de cassis, light oak, rich tannins. Lingering sweet finish.

    25. Sharon Warner

      Surprisingly approachable. Poured and let it breathe. Balanced, refined tannins, fresh fruit. Lovely!

    26. Mary Gow

      Impressive ‘second’ wine with dark black fruit, cassis, chocolate, tobacco, and mineral notes. Enjoy earlier with decantation. Gives a glimpse of Howell Mountain wine.

    Who owns Dunn Winery?

    Randy Dunn, who embarked on his winemaking journey in 1975 at Caymus, established his own vineyard on Howell Mountain in 1979. At that time, this area was considered the remote outskirts of Napa's wine culture. History has validated his forward-thinking vision. Randy's legacy continues with his son Mike, who took over the winemaking duties in 1999.

    Critical Acclaim

    WS 91
    Wine Spectator
    Ripe and polished, with a friendly beam of warmed cassis and plum sauce flavors flanked by singed vanilla and apple wood. Reveals a tug of tobacco on the finish. Leans to toasty in the end, but is solidly built nevertheless. Drink now through 2034.
    VIN 93
    The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a powerful, tannic wine. In some vintages, the Napa Valley bottling is quite accessible, but not here. Swaths of tannin wrap around a core of dark fruit, gravel, spice, dried flowers, lavender and charred earth are pushed forward, with firm, chocolaty tannins that wrap it all together. This brooding, potent Cabernet needs at least a few years to settle. The 2019 is a bruiser, that is for sure.
