1999 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (cracked capsule, lightly soiled label)

SKU #1342490 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The tasting ends on a high note, as the 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is deeply expressive, despite its obvious youth. Here it is the wine's sense of energy that stands out most. Vivid, nuanced and structured, the 1999 is a wine to cellar for another 5-10 years at a minimum to allow the flavors to flesh out. Readers lucky enough to own the 1999 who can wait a few years will be very happy. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2014)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark *** #58 of the Top 100 Wines of 2002 *** Dark and intense, with a tight, compact, tightly wound band of earth, anise, leather, game meat, currant and blackberry, revealing layers of complexity and concentration before the tannins and cedary oak clamp down. Needs time. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2002)

90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Dunn's normal policy is to select the Napa Cabernet Sauvignon from his barrels right before bottling. Hence what I tasted was a trial blend of this wine. This year produced extremely small crops characterized by extremely cool growing seasons as well as unusually late harvests. Dunn dropped 30% of the crop in order to guarantee ripeness in his vineyard. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2000)

K&L Notes

One of the last of the great and ageable '99s. Solid structure with noticeable tannins, this offering has the balance to develop for decades. Dunn has the track record to prove it, from lesser vintages (the '83 comes to mind) to this fabulous '87.
