Since 1979, Randy and Lori Dunn have owned and operated Dunn Vineyards and continue to produce one of the most highly acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignons from Howell Mountain, and the Napa Valley.
The vineyards are run according to lutte raisonée, with no herbicides, just one or two anti-disease chemical treatments. The grapes are sorted with meticulous detail, berry by berry. The uncrushed berries are cooled to 10°C for 10 days, then warmed to 22°C for fermentation to start. Tanks are punched down once and pumped over once a day, after which the solids are given a light pressing and all the juice is left to settle for a week, so that any last sugar emerging from the pressed skins can finish fermenting.

Tasting Note:
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is brilliant. It is powerful and ample, showing Napa in all its glory. It marries the intensity of the vintage with the savouriness that makes Howell Mountain Cabernets so distinctive.
Dark blue/purplish fruit, graphite, spice, leather, dried herbs and lavender imbue the 2016 with striking intensity and character.

This is a Dry, Medium+ bodied wine with High acidity and High tannin. It is Pronounced in it's intensity with Medium+ alcohol and a Long finish.
