2016 Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon | Howell Mountain AVA Napa Valley California 750ml

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

The mountain really determined the style of the wine. It became obvious right away that the grapes up here were much more powerful than down on the valley floor. I just made the wine itself the same way we did at Caymus, it just was a more tannic wine due to the place. | Randy Dunn

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain offers good density, but in more of a medium-body style that is quite a bit more approachable than is the norm here. A whole range of inky Howell Mountain fruit, graphite, grilled herb, licorice, spice, chocolate, and lavender nuances open up in a brooding, resonant Cabernet that needs a few years in bottle to start drinking well. There is plenty of the structure readers have come to expect from Dunn, but less youthful austerity, which is not a bad thing at all. | Antonio Galloni

Sage and bay leaf notes lead the way here, followed quickly by black currant and bitter plum paste flavors. The finish is framed by singed cedar and alder details, with a lingering sanguine echo. Needs a little time to soften fully, but every thing is in place. Best from 2023 through 2038. 2,800 cases made. | Wine Spectator
