The saturated black/purple-colored 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a promising yet backward nose of minerals lead pencil and blackberries/cassis. The wine was bottled in June but it is showing no ill effects. This mammoth offering displays extraordinary concentration and purity as well as a thick unctuous texture with high tannin levels. It will evolve for 30-50 years. When will it reach its plateau of maturity? My best guess is 10-15 years ... minimum.

Wild perfumed aromas of cassis blackberry minerals tobacco iron and mocha. Juicy very intensely flavored and sharply delineated but tightly wound; flavors of raw dark berries and licorice in the middle palate. Strong framing acidity gives the fruit a juicy quality. Finishes firmly tannic and long with the notes of mocha and iron repeating. 91+

Dunn

Dunn Vineyards is a celebrated family-owned and operated estate in Howell Mountain, a subregion of the Napa Valley AVA. In 1979, Randy Dunn and his wife Lori moved with their son Mike into a home on the outskirts of the quiet town of Angwin. While the valley floor inspired farmers to plant vineyards and make wine, Howell Mountain captured Randy’s heart.

From these mountain vineyards, the Dunn family made its mark on the wine industry, and the land in turn made its mark on the family. They now own over 200 acres of land, 35 acres of which are planted to vines - 29 acres to Cabernet Sauvignon, and a small parcel for Mike Dunn’s Petite Sirah, released under the Retro Cellars label. Another 63 forested acres are entrusted to the Napa Valley Land Trust. The Dunn’s continue to produce two of the best regional examples of Cabernet Sauvignon, one from Howell Mountain and one from Napa Valley.
