Napa Valley vintner, Randy Dunn, brings his artistry and expertise to Washington State to produce small quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Columbia Valley's finest vineyards. His reputation for producing world-class Cabernet spans more than four decades. After making wines at Caymus from 1975-1985, Randy established Dunn Vineyards on Howell Mountain where he continues to craft distinctive wines of high acclaim.
Enticing flavors and aromas of blackberry cobbler and roasted rosemary are woven around a core of vibrant fruit. Deeply concentrated, yet soft on the palate with a firm mouth feel that coats the palate. A hint of earthiness and oak spice combine with dark black fruit to add to the wine's appealing texture and long, refined finish.
"Made by Randy Dunn, of Dunn Vineyards, and a blend of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Feather is up there with the top Bordeaux varieties of the vintage. Loaded with notions of dark fruits, chocolate, mineral, coffee bean and scorched earth, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, beautiful purity of fruit and a voluptuous texture that only partially conceals edgy, yet ripe, tannin. It has the fruit to be enjoyable now, but will be better in another year or three, and evolve nicely for 12 to 15 years or more."
