DUNN VINEYARDS Cabernet Sauvignon, Howell Mountain 2018

The 2018 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is the 40th Anniversary for Dunn and the bottle is marked with a commemorative seal for the occasion. As far as the wine itself, it is another outstanding vintage to add to the long list of sensational releases the Dunn’s have produced over the years, displaying remarkable elegance, purity and a lovely classic character. It slowly begins to unwind in the glass releasing inviting aromas of blackberries and cassis, which are woven together with savory herbs, coffee, wet gravel, pencil shavings and fresh cut florals. The palate is medium to full-bodied and well-structured with polished tannins that firmly wrap its core. It goes on to display outstanding overall precision and balance with a remarkable sense of freshness that continues through the long finish. This is a simply beautiful style of Napa Cabernet that should age brilliantly. That said, the 2018 will require a serious amount of air contact if approaching upon release, however this is ultimately a Cabernet built for the cellar and destined for a marvelous future ahead.
