Tasting Notes:

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.

Tasting Notes:

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.”

Loralee worked side by side with Randy during the early years, as well as handled the office. Her office duties might have ended with her full time duties as a mother to two young girls and a teenage boy, but Lori continued to work events. By no means did her responsibilities lessen over the years as she cared for the family, home and property.
