According to Robert Parker: Having closely followed Dunn's Cabernet Sauvignons since the debut 1979 vintage, it is remarkable how consistent these wines have been. Dunn's great early successes, especially the 1982s, were followed by a succession of rich, tannic wines in 1984, 1985, 1986, and 1987, two tough years in 1988 and 1989, and, as with most northern California wineries, an unprecedented run of great years starting in 1990. The wines are always impressive for their strength, massive body, and highly extracted blackcurrant fruit. Dunn, who believes in filtering but not fining, tends to use the former technique as a way of bringing a measure of refinement to the brute strength and power his wines possess...
Saturated full ruby. Roasted aromas of blackcurrant and black raspberry. Suppler and denser than the rsquo;99, showing more breadth and depth of fruit today. Finishes with chewy, ripe tannins and a chocolatey quality. Another barrel destined for the Howell Mountain bottling: Complex aromas of black raspberry, violet, bitter chocolate, minerals and leather. Juicy and harmonious in the mouth; dense, broad and sweet, but also possesses good spine and verve. Ripe tannins spread out to cover the entire palate. This should be very strong for the vintage. (Dunn had 20% more crop in 2000 than in rsquo;99 but on my late winter tour the 2000 samples came across as sweeter, more harmonious and more complete.)
The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain possesses a black/blue/purple color, and a texture of unctuosity and thickness. Greatness is suggested by a wonderfully sweet mid-section, gorgeous purity, and this humongous winersquo;s overall symmetry. It also possesses sumptuous layers of concentration, remarkably sweet tannin, low acidity, and a 40+ second finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2040.
Unlike any wine I have ever tasted from Dunn. Layer after layer of flavor saturates the palate in this opulent, full-throttle Cabernet Sauvignon. - According to the Wine Advocate
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.
