Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

$195

The enormous 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a super-powerful, fabulously-concentrated, 50-year wine. Aromas and flavors of blackberry/cassis jam, minerals, and subtle oak are found in this extravagantly rich, gargantuan Cabernet Sauvignon that should age effortlessly for half a century...

Always a favorite. Tangy eucalyptus, red fruits and low ph. Nearly had every vintage at this point.

Spicy, leafy-eucalyptus-pyrazines, classic Howell mtn bright red fruit, unobtrusive French oak finish. Lots of life ahead.

Clean, fruit expressive with tannins that have begun to unlock. Another 10 years easy, but we all know that.

Wow 1997 Howell Mtn Dunn out of a Magnum brought by Dave N! Thanks Big time. Getting a chance to drink 18 plus year old wine! What a treat. Tannins have mellowed, fruit is still kicking! Great mouthfeel. Awesome Experience! Monday Night Wine Group Dinner

Very enjoyable. Decanted. Could easily go another 10+ years. Tannins not fully resolved. Preferred to Insignia of same vintage consumed side by side.
