Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Wine 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

90-92 points Robert Parker: The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa, which all comes from Howell Mountain, possesses deep, dark, primordial, blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with notes of flowers and minerals. It is impressively built, rich, and intense with the gorgeous fruit purity evident in all the Dunn Cabernets. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020+. (Feb 2005)

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

Good bright ruby. Rather inky aromas of cassis iron filings graphite licorice root and minerals.Ripe flavors of dark berries sassafras and minerals; not particularly sweet but more accessible today than the Howell Mountain bottling. Finishes with serious slightly dry tannins and very good length. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
