1995 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (cracked capsule)

SKU #1028606 96 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is similar in all respects to the Napa Valley, but somewhat heavier in the mouth, with an aggressive tannic bite, and more length. It possesses mineral-tinged blackberry and cassis fruit, massive body, and extraordinary purity and length. It should not be touched for 12-15 years. It will undoubtedly live through the first half of the next century. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/1998)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A huge, tannic wine, the 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is the first wine in this tasting that is nowhere near close to deliver maximum pleasure. Layers of dark red/blackish fruit supported by firm, incisive tannin hit the palate in an explosive, full-bodied Cabernet built for the cellar. The 1995 is a beauty, but readers need to be very, very patient. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2014)

93 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark ruby-red. Brooding, pure aromas of black fruits, licorice, nutmeg and venison. Even more intensely flavored than the Napa bottling, like an essence of small dark berries complicated by licorice and mint. Juicy acidity gives the flavors terrific thrust and persistence. Finishes with firm but not excessive tannins. Inner quote mark (11/1998)
