2000 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1006402 91-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark First component: Saturated ruby. Wild aromas of crushed dark berries, leather and meat. Juicy and minerally but not particularly fleshy. Shows a slightly rustic gamey quality to go with the mountain berry intensity. Second component: Distinctly animal on the nose. More expressive, expansive flavors of black raspberry, minerals and game. This may well surpass both the '99 and '98 Howell Mountain. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2003)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Earthy and meaty with black currant, spice and hints of stones. Full-bodied, chewy and flavorful. Holding on well. Don't worry about the brett. Tastes like Pauillac. Inner quote mark (6/2016)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very strong nose on the cusp of minerals and cleaning fluid! Lots of stone-licking quality. Graphite. Still lots of tannin. Not sweet, not alcoholic. Very distinctive! Love or loathe wine. 17/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Telltale aromas of violets, blackberries, blueberries, and crushed stones are apparent in this medium to full-bodied, slightly lean 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain. Tasty and expressive, it needs 3-4 years of cellaring, and should drink well for a decade. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2003)
