Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain, which comes 100% from their estate vineyards, is slightly higher in alcohol at 14.3% (despite the label saying 13.9%). Soft, opaque purple-colored, with a ripe, full-bodied mouthfeel and notes of graphite, spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit, it is full-bodied, luscious, and ideal for drinking over the next 12-15 years.
Wine SpectatorSucceeds where many failed in 2011, offering enough flavor through a mix of dried herb, bell pepper, dried currant and sage and a crushed rock loaminess on the aftertaste. Drink now through 2026.
