Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

98 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): Dunn's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is off the charts. Inky, rich and deep, the 2010 possesses stunning depth, power and richness. Plums, black cherries, mocha, melted road tar and licorice. Layers of fruit build to a huge, textured finish. There is so much to look forward to here, but most of it will happen in the future. This is a dazzling showing. Drink: 2020-2040. (Nov 2013)

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

Saturated ruby-red. A black hole of a nose, hinting at blackberry, medicinal black cherry and menthol. Quite perfumed in the mouth but youthfully tight in spite of its velvety texture, conveying terrific intensity and lift to the flavors of boysenberry, blackberry, redcurrant, minerals and black pepper. Really outstanding saline depth here. A great young Dunn Howell Mountain in the making: it’s built for long aging but there’s nothing hard about it in the early going.

The flagship wine comes from their high elevation vineyards on Howell Mountain. The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain possesses stunning minerality as well as sweet notes of ink, acacia flowers, blueberries and blackberries. Thick, unctuously textured and full-bodied with terrific concentration and density, it should drink well for two decades.
