DUNN VINEYARDS Cabernet Sauvignon, Howell Mountain 2005

The 2005 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is a total gem from Dunn which is showing absolutely phenomenal after nearly 15 years. This instantly impresses with stunning aromatics of dark currants and back cherries which are laced with Indian spices, bell peppers, tobacco and some underlying earthy tones that all come together and soar from the glass. On the palate this possesses an absolutely gorgeous mouthfeel, with big polished tannins that are beautifully integrated into the solid frame. It displays stunning balance, as layers of ripe dark fruits and savory characteristics expand seamlessly through the lavish finish. While the 2005 is showing impeccably well at this juncture, however there is no sense of urgency to start pulling the cork, as it should have at least another decade or two of peak drinking to offer.
