Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
VinousDunn's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is off the charts. Inky, rich and deep, the 2010 possesses stunning depth, power and richness. Plums, black cherries, mocha, melted road tar and licorice. Layers of fruit build to a huge, textured finish. There is so much to look forward to here, but most of it will happen in the future. This is a dazzling showing.
Wine AdvocateThe flagship wine comes from their high elevation vineyards on Howell Mountain. The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain possesses stunning minerality as well as sweet notes of ink, acacia flowers, blueberries and blackberries. Thick, unctuously textured and full-bodied with terrific concentration and density, it should drink well for two decades.
Wine SpectatorA textbook Dunn Howell Mountain. Very tight, dense and powerful, targeting dark berry, black licorice, fresh herb, crushed rock, and subtle floral and herb notes. Best from 2015 through 2023.-J.L.
