How About a
Super Premium, Legendary Napa Cab
at nearly 1/3 Off??
This week's selection : Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, 2002, the more approachable of Randy Dunn's two bottlings. Drinking beautifully right now, Dunn Napa is a perfect foil to roasted meats and stews, and is a great gift wine for your upcoming holiday gifts!
Dunn Vineyards produces two labels, Howell Mountain and Napa Valley. Both wines are one hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon.
Dunn Vineyards is located east of St. Helena in the town of Angwin on Howell Mountain in Napa Valley. In 1972 Randy and Lori purchased the original vineyard property. The winery was established in 1979, with the first harvest of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. In 1981, the first release offered consumers 660 cases of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Howell Mountain vineyards. In 1982, Dunn also released their first Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
Dunn produces around 3500 cases of Howell Mountain and about 1500 cases of Napa Valley. The Howell Mountain wines consist of one hundred percent Howell Mountain fruit. The Napa Valley wines include up to 15% Napa Valley floor fruit with the remainder of the fruit coming from Howell Mountain. This floor fruit contributes to the wine's softer approach, even though the wines usually can be laid down for 15+ years.
Sweet black currant, floral, blueberry, and cassis characteristics emerge from the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. Medium body, it is a more elegant, restrained effort.
90 points, Steven Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, graphite, mint and chocolate. Then surprisingly pliant and creamy for a Dunn cabernet, with accessible flavors of currant, licorice and milk chocolate. Finishes with rather suave tannins and some juicy acidity. Suppler than it appeared to be last spring when I tasted it from barrel, and considerably softer than the Howell Mountain bottling."
