The first sip of a Dunn Cabernet from Howell Mountain will have you hooked. Having learned his craft from the best like Pahlmeyer to La Jota, the wines stand at the top of the heap in Napa. This is the definition of old school mountain cabernet. Towering gems, that are meant for the cellar.
"...strongest efforts Dunn Vineyards has made since the early 1990s." - Robert Parker
About the wine
In 1979, Randy Dunn launched Dunn Vineyards a top Howell Mountain. At 2,000 feet elevation, the grapes develop thick skins, and ink black juice. The estate only produces about 4,000 cases, a tiny amount for Napa Valley. Where Napa wines have risen to astronomical prices and where “cult” wines are in the $500+ range. The folks at Dunn have remained humble. These wines could easily fetch over $200, yes, for what they are, remain accessible for a wine that many consider to be one of the best out of Napa.

"Dark ruby. Captivating violet lift to the aromas and flavors of cassis, kirsch, licorice and mocha. Plush and fine-grained; extremely deep in the middle palate but this extremely rich wine impresses as much for its finesse as for its sheer density and power. Finishes with wonderfully harmonious tannins and great slow-mounting length. Owing to its sheer density and baby fat, the wine is edge-free from the start, but it's likely to evolve at a snail's pace and last for decades."
