Editorial Reviews for Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain
A bit tanky on the nose still, this is tight and nuanced with very fine if slightly nutty oak-driven today. Air brings out a hint of grassiness, then a little blue fruit that shows fine ripeness with an edge of sweetness, dried herb notes that really build on the nose and a hint of roast coffee bean. Wow, this is stunningly well-balanced and packed with dark and powerful fruit that shows lighter shadings of strawberry and raspberry accenting the core of black fruit with lovely nuanced wood spice following on the back end. The finish reveals layers of dusty tannins covered with black cherry fruit, which just builds in intensity and length. This is powerful and seamless. 96 points
Muscular Cabernet that will need four or five years to peak. Concentrated fruit has brawny tannic structure. Cedar, vanilla and dark chocolate from toasty oak will integrate with bottle age. There's noteworthy intensity and focus to the flavors, then the structure amps up in the finish. Has outstanding length and pervasive earthiness and minerality. Try this in 2015 and cellar it with confidence until at least 2025.
