Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

$129.95

 98+ Points - limited                         Fantastic new Cabernet releases from Dunn, one of Napa Valley's pioneer wineries. Limited. 96 Points Decanter Magazine: "An authoritative, intense wine with a lovely chassis of fine but firm tannins, underpinned by vibrant acidty: quintessential Dunn Howell Mountain. Let it sleep for a decade to reveal its potential complexity. Drinking Window 2024-2055." 94 Points Robert Parker: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is still in barrel and looks to be a 25- to 35-year wine. It is much softer than one normally expects from the old classic vintages of Randy Dunn, but the son seems to be trying to build more approachability into the wines without sacrificing any of their sheer concentration and extract. Blue and black fruits, earth, truffle notes, camphor and creosote are all present in this big, juicy, succulent mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that should be approachable young, hit its peak in 10-15 years and last 25-30.... ...This iconic winery has some pretty stunning Cabernets for those with patience and cold cellars. Their estate on Howell Mountain now extends to 34 acres of vines. Randy Dunn’s son, Mike, is now running the show and may be picking slightly riper than his dad would have done."

Superb. Ordinarily I would not open a Dunn so young, but we served this at a tasting yesterday. Not a crime to Open now but better if you can wait. Classic Dunn.

Young, but drinking well after decanting. Oak, tobacco, earth on the nose, beautiful well structured fruit, smooth and wonderful.
