Dunn Vineyards

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Red, resinous currant with a licorice twist. Warm blackberry, dark toast, vanilla, cedar and sweet tabac seamlessly tailored, even at such a young age. Fresh gingerbread oven, too. Silk suit of tannins; loose stitching. Wound tightly showing sinewy potential and a Christmas cactus of sutured fruits bursting at the seams with liquid graphite and black currant reduction with fresh cassis and olive berry. Violets, treacle and black tea. Onyx train of a witch bride all the way down Howell mountain! #Dunn #DunnVineyards #napacab #napacabernet #Napa #howellmountain #howell #howellmtn #mountainwine #cabernetacademy #cabernetday #cabernetsauvignon #californiaclassic — 2 years ago

Big cassis and black currant on a dusty cedar frame with smoky blackberry, blood orange, clove and fir bark nose. Cinnamon, ripe cassis, dried, black cherry, toasty sesame on half-burnt toast. Graphite-blackberry and rustic cigar flavors. #howellmountain #howell #howellmtn #mountainwine #napa #Bravantevineyards #cabernet #cabernetacademy #caliclassic #cawine — 3 years ago
