2004 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1036268 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Reticent but promising blackberry and black currant fruit as well as licorice aromas jump from the glass of this inky/purple-colored 2004. Rich and broad with sweeter tannins than one expects in a ten-year-old Dunn Cabernet, it reveals impressive richness, power and purity, but is still an adolescent in terms of its evolution. Slightly more evolved than the Dunn Cabernets of the early and mid-1980s, it can be drunk now or cellared for another 20-25 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2014)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby. Urgent, high-pitched aromas of crushed cassis, minerals and licorice. Juicy, bright and pure, with sharply delineated flavors of cassis, bitter chocolate and licorice. Very lively wine with a firm underlying spine. Finishes with subtle building length and a fine dusting of tannins. Still quite tight and primary but not hard. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (5/2008)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright, youthful medium ruby. Vibrant aromas of cassis, black raspberry, cherry pit and bitter chocolate are complicated by hints of leather and pipe tobacco. Very suave and fine-grained but youthfully withdrawn, with the dark berry, bitter cherry, licorice, chewing tobacco and leather flavors carrying through the palate. An intriguing suggestion of floral oils adds another dimension. Boasts wonderful finesse to its strong but talc-like tannins. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (6/2015)

First of all, I am incredibly biased towards the wines of Dunn. One of my favorite wines ever was the 1987 Howell Mountain. What to say here? These are dense wines full of black fruits, anise, cocoa and cassis. While it is a mouthfull of wine in its youth, it will age magnificently for the next 20 years or more and morph into its trademark elegance. Well worth every penny.
