Dunn Vineyards

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.

  • Long Shadows seems like a guest chef program, but in wine.  In college, our dining program would bring in chefs from around the US about four times a year under the "Cross Country Gourmet" rubric.  There was a lottery type system with a limited number of seats, and someone would come from a resto and we'd get a decent meal on our own turf.  LS g...

    Forum post in the topic Locations F1 vs F2 vs F3

  • Can anyone help me figure out the difference between the Dave Phinney (Orin Swift) Locations F1, F2 and F3 wines. I tried one that was listed as a 2011 vintage. I did not see the bottle and don't know which to look for. Do the 1, 2 and 3 correspond to vintage? Any clarification is appreciated.  Read More

  • It's interesting that a few new topics have popped up recently (Experiencing Cabernet Franc for one) and that my wife Sandra just today handed me an article by Dave McIntyre she cut out of a Washington Post newspaper dated 25 March 2015.  I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits.  And the taste?" regarding the...

  • I was in Calistoga at 6am this morning helping a friend who was picking her Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. First Cab pick in Napa this season. Two weeks sooner than her previous earliest pick.Good looking fruit, but small berries and low yield. A scant 2.2T from the acre vineyard. Read More

  • Wasn't so long ago we were talking about her. Just saw an article pop up on W-SZelma LongOh yeah, and Dave - re: the Brett topic from earlier this year. There are strong suspicions that Leoville Barton wines still contain it, all the way up to vintage 2010. If the 2003 had any, they were pretty minor and didn't stick out much. Read More

  • I think Dunn's son is more involved in the eponymous winery, as well as having his own projects.  Dunn doesn't have to be there for the picking, necessarily--lots of winemakers contract for grapes that come from pretty far away and can't be everywhere at once.  Harder thing is that the crushing, etc, all goes on farther away, but I'm sure he has...
