Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Robert Parker: The enormous 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a super-powerful, fabulously-concentrated, 50-year wine. Aromas and flavors of blackberry/cassis jam, minerals, and subtle oak are found in this extravagantly rich, gargantuan Cabernet Sauvignon that should age effortlessly for half a century. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2050.

Dunn Vineyards produces two labels, Howell Mountain and Napa Valley. Both wines are one hundred percent cabernet sauvignon. We produce around 2500 cases of Howell Mountain and about 1500 cases of Napa Valley. The Howell Mountain wines consist of one hundred percent Howell Mountain fruit. The Napa Valley wines include up to 15% Napa Valley floor fruit with the remainder of the fruit coming from Howell Mountain. This floor fruit contributes to the wine's softer approach, even though the wines usually can be laid down for 15+ years. Read less

Bright deep ruby. Aromas of cassis blackberry dark chocolate licorice and earth. Dense juicy flavors of dark berries dominated by rather penetrating acids. Tougher and even more backward than the Napa Valley bottling but longer and sweeter on the back end. Finishes with powerful toothcoating tannins. Both this and the Napa bottling show much stronger acidity than they did from barrel last winter a few months prior to the bottling. 90+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
