International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 150

($75) Bright full medium ruby. Expressive nose offers cassis, blackberry, black raspberry and leather scents lifted by a minty nuance. Lush and fine-grained but with a firm edge of acidity and menthol and minty nuances energizing the rich dark berry flavors. Finishes with civilized tannins but still needs a few years to harmonize its acidity. Like the Napa Valley bottling, this is suppler than many past releases of this wine.

Wine Advocate Author: Antonio Galloni Issue: 198

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is big, dark and juicy. There is an element of wildness that runs through the wine. Graphite, licorice, tar and smoke are just some of the nuances that add complexity. The 2006 boasts superb purity from start to finish. Elements of fleshiness give the impression the 2006 might drink well relatively early, until the massive tannins set in. Floral notes add freshness on the finish. This is another fabulous wine from Randy Dunn.

Very fruit forward, but with hefty body. Black currants, blackberries and a definite spicy overtone, especially cinnamon. Not as structured as other Howell Mountain wines. The tannins are dusty, more like Rutherford.
