Starting to drink more from 2009. This is fine but nothing memorable.

Black and red berries. Initial burst of pomegranate then quickly morphs to black berries then chemical and caramelized mocha (tar, etc). Very enjoyable!

Probably one of the most sophisticated Napa Howell Mtn Cabs ever made. Absolutely beautiful!

Whole cluster pressed, this beauty will be ready to drink in Another four years. The Dunns are consistent. Because of these pressing matters, It is the only Howell Mountain Cab Sauv on the wine list at the 1313 Wine Bar Restaurant in Napa. If you like getting him started on the subject, ask Jordan Nova. Pretty controversial as Cab Sauv geekdom goes.

Wonderful aroma of black cherry, currant, blackberry, vanilla and a hint of cloves. Wonderfully smooth tannins and mouthfeel, but very light and thin on the palate. Lacks intensity and concentration of flavor or finish.
