Hard to imagine classic Napa Cab from Howell Mountain being much better. Everything you look for in great Cabernet with age. 25byears and it's in the zone, might be peaking but has plenty of life left.

At its peak. Balanced tannin, acid and still fresh fruit. Clean for Dunn which can be an issue. One of the better old Dunns I've enjoyed

Glorious. Worth bringing out the bad boy decanter for! This '96 Dunn is pure elegance. 19 years in, and it's singing right now.

Well made, great stuffing. Still a little tannic and tight. I'd hold or decant several hours.
