2002 Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain

Closed, disappointingly so in fact. The only distinguishing aromas I was getting were oddly that of green almonds and oyster shells – not really what one expects when ordering a Napa Cab! But after an hour in a huge decanter the wine suddenly came to life demonstrating Napa Valleys restrained, grown-up side.

Freshly picked blackberries, a hint of sweet wood and a definite earthiness. A fun delicate wine – it couldn’t shake off the whole oyster shell note though, still not sure if it bothered me or not!

Any how it was a nice pairing with my rare fillet of lamb.
