The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain possesses a black/blue/purple color and a texture of unctuosity and thickness. Greatness is suggested by a wonderfully sweet mid-section gorgeous purity and this humongous wine's overall symmetry. It also possesses sumptuous layers of concentration remarkably sweet tannin low acidity and a 40+ second finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2040.

These '96s seem less backward... Ruby-red. More floral aromatic nose of cassis tobacco and loam. Lush and sweet in the mouth; more silky and voluptuous than the Napa bottling. Here the tannins seem a bit sweeter and finer. These '96s seem less backward than many recent vintages of Dunn cabernet which have a track record for developing very slowly in bottle.
