Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
A persistent cedary, dill-like, woody character overshadows the earth and tart wild berry flavors. Tannic but balanced, it needs short-term cellaring and decanting. Best from 2005 through 2012. 2,200 cases made.
Telltale aromas of violets, blackberries, blueberries, and crushed stones are apparent in this medium to full-bodied, slightly lean 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain. Tasty and expressive, it needs 3-4 years of cellaring, and should drink well for a decade. An interesting point of trivia is that Randy Dunn’s production of approximately 4,000 cases of Napa and Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon per year has not changed since the winery’s inception ... somewhat refreshing in view of the American cultural tendency to think that “bigger is better.”
