The 1983 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is one of the softest, most inviting wines in this tasting. Here it is the wine's pure texture and layers of fruit that stand out most. Leather, menthol and smoke all add nuance... The 1983 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is one of the softest, most inviting wines in this tasting. Here it is the wine's pure texture and layers of fruit that stand out most. Leather, menthol and smoke all add nuance on the close as the wine continues to come together with time in the glass. Among Dunn's early wines, the 1983 is one of the vintages that is closest to maturity, although it will drink well for at least another handful of years. Today, the 1983 is a wine to enjoy for its soft contours and supple, inviting personality.

Tart and earthy also quite tannic but loaded with tart currant spice and cherry-tinged flavors. Tannic finish too but the fruit hangs in there. Drink 1994 to 2000.--Dunn vertical. (JL)
