Description

Dunn Vineyards is a small family-owned estate in Howell Mountain, a sub-appellation within the Napa Valley. Founded in 1979 by Randy Dunn, and still run by him and his son Mike, it is known for making some of the very best Cabernet Sauvignon in the region. The family lands extend to 80 hectares (200 acres), the majority of which is woodland. Some 14ha (35 acres) are under vine, in several vineyards dotted throughout the trees. Most of this is Cabernet Sauvignon, although there are a few blocks of Petite Sirah destined for the Retro Cellars label set up by Mike Dunn. Dunn Vineyards also has a few plots of other grape varieties, although these are not commercially released.

The Winery

Sage and bay leaf notes lead the way, followed quickly by black currant and bitter plum paste flavors. The finish is framed by singed cedar and alder details, with a lingering sanguine echo. Needs a little time to soften fully, but everything is in place. -WS
