  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 97

    A powerful, young wine, even at age 10. Dark, ripe, intense and deeply concentrated, this one is years from peaking. Packed with a rich, earthy core of currant, mineral, anise, sage and cedar. Quite tannic in this tasting, the fruit poured through on the finish.--1987 California Cabernet horizontal. 2,200 cases made.

    Full medium ruby. Blackberry, cassis, cracked pepper, minerals, maple syrup and tar on the nose. Smooth but powerful in the mouth, with dark berry and mineral flavors enlivened by excellent vinosity. A dense, highly aromatic wine with terrific verve. Finishes with powerful but sweet tannins and palate-staining dark berry flavors.

    The massive 1987 Cabernet Sauvignon-Howell Mountain is super-rich, extremely tannic, and very long. It needs at least 7-8 years to soften and should last for up to 20.

    A fabulous wine, the best of 4 '87 Cabs we had. Outstanding in every aspect: sweet tannins, long finish, good structure and fruit. And has plenty of stuffing left

Dunn Vineyards is located east of St. Helena in the town of Angwin on Howell Mountain in Napa Valley. In 1972 Randy and Lori purchased the original vineyard property. The winery was established in 1979, with the first harvest of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. In 1981, the first release offered consumers 660 cases of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Howell Mountain vineyards. In 1982, Dunn also released their first Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

Currently Dunn Vineyards produces around 5000 cases of extremely age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon.
