100% Cabernet, it is sappy, supple, silky and filled with ripe blackberry flavor. The berries and cherries lead into a super smooth and liquorous finish. The oak is well-integrated, lending sweet caramel notes and a lick of licorice and mocha. Blending pure Cabernet from the right mix of sites to fill it out is the real art; that's what Dunham does especially well.
