“#6 Wine Of The Year • 98 points "What a wine." Vinous”

"Outrageously beautiful... What a wine." Vinous

By David Gettenberg

"The 2019 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon from Dunn is nothing short of stunning." International Wine Review

Dunn Vineyard's "Howell Mountain" always gets monster scores - and rightly so.  It is no surprise that this iconic Cabernet Sauvignon just landed Wine Spectator's #6 Wine Of The Year.

Dunn has been an iconic Cabernet producer for the past fifty year.  They were a pioneer in the Howell Mountain region.  Their "Howell Mountain" Cabernet Sauvingon is a classic, terroir-driven Cabernet Sauvignon; not a fruit bomb, like so many Cali Cabs today.

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is outrageously beautiful.  A wine of extraordinary purity, the 2019 dazzles right out of the gate. The tannins are nearly silky for a young Howell Mountain Cabernet. Red/purplish fruit, lavender, spice, rose petal and pomegranate all build in this sumptuous, explosive Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2019 is one of the most elegant Cabernets I have tasted here, and that is saying something. What a wine!"  Vinous

Howell Mountain's micro-climate is what contributes to this wine's character.  A small region within Napa, the cool days force the grapes to struggle.  A smaller grape means a ration of less fruit to skin.  That means more texture and structure and less over-the-top fruit. 

A gorgeous 2019 Napa vintage will allow you to enjoy this stunning Cabernet now.  Dunn's Howell Mountain is also known for its ageability.  

Feel free to cellar this gem and enjoy it over the next 20 years.  

Drink or hold.  We suggest doing both! 

First come, first served.

Enjoy!

“A sense of polish and a note of purity.”

Wine Spectator • 96 / 100

#6 Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines Of 2023

"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."
