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 — a month ago

I love wines like thjs because as I’m tasting it seems old world #cabernertsauvignon but if I took it back to Spain and tasted it six months or a year from now it would seem totally #californianwine #howellmountain #napavalley — a month ago

Estate Reserve Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Dark black olive loaf aromas with a blackberry muffin and black plum, cassis and violet, announce leather, coffee and shade-grown tobaccos. Medium mouthfeel will make sugar-lovers antsy, but this wine boasts dark toast, graphite, coffee, cassis, black currant, pepper, and bitter floral tastes that give way to the synergies of the aforementioned. #howellmountain #pestonifamily #Napa #cabernetsauvignon #cab #californiawine — a year ago

Always a winner

Dunn Vineyards

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 1991

Band aids, green peppers, raspberry, tobacco, very forward tannins still, lots of grip, but so good. Couple more decades of life I'm sure.

And do or die Caps, already in the hole 1-0

Old Vine Petite Sirah 2012


#howellmountain #napaterroirisreal #petitesirah #dunn this is a big wine and I completely recommend decanting it first. Can definitely age. A Coravin won't give you a true idea of this wine, it needs to be uncorked. — a year ago

Completely agree needs some air!

Bravante Vineyards

Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

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 — a year ago

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

This 2000 #DunnVineyards #NapaValley #HowellMountain sub-appellation drinks wonderfully, though it easily has another 10-15 years of keeping potential. Strong palate of mostly very red strawberries and raspberries and blackcurrants, black cherries. Also whiffs of tobacco, cigar box and leather. This is a #California #Cabernet that stands out by its originality and profile, and certainly tastes better than many of its mainstream "blockbuster" brethren. — 2 years ago
