Professional Reviews For This Wine


Vinous | Rating: 98

Dunn's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is off the charts. Inky, rich and deep, the 2010 possesses stunning depth, power and richness. Plums, black cherries, mocha, melted road tar and licorice. Layers of fruit build to a huge, textured finish. There is so much to look forward to here, but most of it will happen in the future. This is a dazzling showing.

Fabulous aromas of currants, licorice and eucalyptus. Full body with an intense backbone of acidity and tannins. Chewy but wonderfully polished. Turns to terracotta. Firm and silky. Great wine. Try it in 2018. 3,000 cases.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

The flagship wine comes from their high elevation vineyards on Howell Mountain. The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain possesses stunning minerality as well as sweet notes of ink, acacia flowers, blueberries and blackberries. Thick, unctuously textured and full-bodied with terrific concentration and density, it should drink well for two decades.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94(+?)

(13.9% alcohol): Saturated ruby-red. A black hole of a nose, hinting at blackberry, medicinal black cherry and menthol. Quite perfumed in the mouth but youthfully tight in spite of its velvety texture, conveying terrific intensity and lift to the flavors of boysenberry, blackberry, redcurrant, minerals and black pepper. Really outstanding saline depth here. A great young Dunn Howell Mountain in the making: it's built for long aging but there's nothing hard about it in the early going.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Very tight, dense and powerful, targeting dark berry, black licorice, fresh herb, crushed rock, and subtle floral and herb notes. The tannins grip and hang on, but the flavors push through. A textbook version.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
