1991 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
It all comes together in the 1991 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain. A huge, powerful wine, the 1991 is beautifully expressive today. An exotic melange of dark red/blackish fruit melds into smoke, incense and spices as the wine opens up. Air softens some of the contours nicely, making the 1991 hugely appealing today. This is a very pretty Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the near and medium-term.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1991 Howell Mountain Cabernet is noticeably thicker and more highly extracted than the 1992 and 1993 vintages. It is a huge, rich, powerful wine with great depth, as well as a boat-load of tannin.
A dense, potent, rich, dark-colored wine, with immense tannins and a rich core of earth and leather-scented Cabernet fruit. Offers hints of mint, rose petal and anise, and at midpalate it gives a glimmer of polish before finishing with a wall of chewy tannins. Patience required.--'81/'91 California Cabernet retrospective. Best from 2003 through 2014. (Web Only- 2002)
