For now it is, but hard to say for the near future. Dunn is always making decent wine, but then the Howell Mt. Cab used to be $60-70s, not $90s(Especially the 2006-2009 have super ratings from Antonio Galloni). But since Galloni's leaving, who's to say the next taster won't swing Dunn back to the 90-93 points tier? causing the score-whores to jump ship again.


I wondered why Dunn seemed to rise from frequently dismissed to more appreciated this past few years - it's the points!

Get Mars Blackmon on the line!

Agree with the person in the article saying, "non-pinot light reds" as PN is getting too damn expensive. Maybe Grenache-based blends, Gamay, Tempranillo.
