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. — 10 months ago

Completely agree needs some air!

Dunn Vineyards

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. — a year 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

Sorry about that. Pens for the Cup now!


Meh, I know better than to get truly excited about a DC team #notsurprised

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
