2000 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

SKU #1006404 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. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2003)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright, saturated ruby. Aromas of cassis, leather and tobacco. As juicy as the Napa bottling but showing stronger fruit notes of cassis and bitter cherry, even a sweet/sour note of pomegranate. Finishes with good length. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2004)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Marked by ripe plum and cherry fruit with a cedary oak edge that turns to tobacco and herbs. Well-balanced, with firm tannins and a hint of wild berry and chocolate on the finish. (JL) Inner quote mark (12/2004)

K&L Notes

According to Dunn Vineyards' early tasting notes, the 2000 was expected to require a decade-plus in the cellar: "As a group we considered this wine to be too youthful to enjoy right now with high acidity and alcohol but we would expect the astringency, tannic hard edges to smooth-out with a few years careful cellaring. Not only would the wine be able to structurally align but it would give it the opportunity to develop additional maturing characteristics. Already showing some cigar, mushroom, cocoa powder, graphite, pencil-shavings – Tasters feel these will become more integrated and interesting over time. This is already showing amazing complexity of flavors for such a recently bottled wine. Medium length."
