Dunn Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1988

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.

An austere style, with a touch of mint and spice, but has plenty of black cherry, currant, plum and cedar flavors. The tannins are substantial and it could use a little more body in the middle. Cellar until 1996. 2,100 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1988 Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 750ml

Among the best in depth richness concentration complexity and length. Classic Dunn Howell Mountain in its core of rich earthy currant mineral and raspberry. Finishes with chewy tannins but also the fruit to match.--1988 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2008. 2 100 cases made. (JL) Wine Spectator.
