01 Dunham Cellars, Trutina

Balanced and subtle, this Dunham Bordeaux-style blend of cabernet, merlot, and cabernet franc is textbook. It's neither shy nor cloying, with mild flavors of sweet blueberry, black currants, and very minty chocolate sauce--though the clean fruit dominates. The aggressive spice adds nice texture to the wine, but can't cover up the slight, lazy finish.
