This 2016 Dunn signature wine contains only fruit farmed on Howell Mountain. Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 comes in a distinctive bottle that is hand dipped in red wax. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. aged 32 months in 100% new French oak.
A different beast, the Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 is dense and concentrated, with gorgeous crème de cassis, lead pencil, violets, damp earth, and tobacco leaf all emerging from the glass. Full-bodied on the palate, it shows the vintage’s purity, balance, and elegance and is concentrated, has chalky, building tannins, a great mid-palate, and one heck of a finish. Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 reminds me of a great Saint-Julien from Bordeaux and will benefit from 7-8 years of bottle age and keep for 40-50 years. Bravo. Best after 2029.
