Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1985

Winemaker's Notes:

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. The Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is usually more approachable at a younger age with it’s softer tannins.

Tight, firm and well structured, with compact, deeply concentrated currant, anise and floral flavors. The taut structure remains intact through the slightly dry, somewhat rustic finish, where it gains a wonderful complexity.--Cabernet Challenge. (JL) Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1985 Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 750ml

Intense and concentrated, packed with ripe cassis, cherry and currant flavors that are rich and elegant. The acidity and tannins are crisp and juicy, offering great potential for the cellar. A real mouthful of Cabernet. Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1985 Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1500ml
