Winemaker's Notes

#6 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2023

Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 is a captivating expression that encapsulates the distinctive characteristics of the Howell Mountain AVA in Napa Valley. This vintage, known for its richness and structure, is skillfully crafted by Dunn Vineyards to showcase the unique terroir of the region.

In the glass, the wine exhibits a deep and impenetrable garnet color, foretelling the concentration and depth within. The nose is a symphony of intense aromas, with blackberry and cassis taking the lead, accompanied by notes of dried herbs, graphite, and a subtle hint of cedar. The aromatic profile suggests a wine of both power and sophistication.

On the palate, the Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 delivers a full-bodied and robust experience. Ripe black fruit flavors dominate, supported by layers of dark chocolate, espresso, and a touch of savory herbs. The tannins are assertive yet well-integrated, contributing to a structured and age-worthy wine. The finish is long and persistent, leaving a trail of dark fruit and a trace of earthiness.

Critic Ratings

Jeb Dunnuck Review - Rated 98:
I would put the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain up against both the 2013 and 2016 as a potential reference point vintage for this cuv e. Checking in at 13.9% alcohol and revealing a deep purple hue as well as incredible aromatics of pure cr me de cassis, scorched earth, graphite, bouquet garni, and hints of plum, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness carrying ultra-fine tannins, a flawless sense of balance and purity, and incredible length. It has plenty of classic Howell Mountain structure, but it's far from the beast of a wine these were 10 to 15 years ago, and it clearly offers ample pleasure today. Nevertheless, it's going to benefit from 5-7 years of bottle age and, I suspect, evolve nicely over the following 20-30 years. Tasted twice with consistent results, hats off to Mike Dunn for this brilliant wine.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 96:
Lushly fruited, this sends waves of crushed plum, boysenberry compote and blackberry paste out from the core, with a strong undercurrent of cast iron and smoldering tobacco to boot. Grippy and dense, but with a sense of polish and a note of purity in the guise of a pretty violet echo.
