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

Consumers may be shocked by how tough, tannic, and backward the 1991 Napa Cabernet tastes. It possesses Dunn's wonderfully pure, rich, blackcurrant flavors, as well as length, intensity, and full body. Yet the tannin levels in this tight wine are f... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

The 1991 Howell Mountain Cabernet is noticeably thicker and more highly extracted than the 1992 and 1993 vintages. It is a huge rich powerful wine with great depth as well as a boat-load of tannin. Do not touch a bottle for at least 5-6 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

A dense potent rich dark-colored wine with immense tannins and a rich core of earth and leather-scented Cabernet fruit. Offers hints of mint rose petal and anise and at midpalate it gives a glimmer of polish before finishing with a wall of chewy tannins. Patience required.-- 81/ 91 California Cabernet retrospective. Best from 2003 through 2014. (JL) Wine Spectator.

Despite its deep color, firm tannins and fruit concentration, this is still rough-and-tumble, with earthy, oaky flavors that override the backward berry and currant notes. 2,100 cases made. - Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1991 Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 750ml
