*NYV Note*: 1.5 Liters of Howell Mountain Dunn are extremely rare, very few btls leave the Dunn private cellar. But because of our special connection - we're able to offer up a few bottles of arguably the best 2017 Cabernet made in Napa.
A classic, old-school Cabernet made by one of America's all-time great Cabernet producers. This beauty comes from atop Howell Mountain, nestled among 150+ year old fir trees.
"The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is sure to make Dunn fans happy. Powerful and ample, it marries the natural intensity of the year with the savoriness that makes Howell Mountain Cabernets so distinctive. Dark blue/purplish fruit, graphite, spice, leather, dried herbs and lavender imbue the 2017 with striking intensity and character. I can't wait to see how it ages. The 2017 is a positively stunning edition of the Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.
The 2017 Cabernets are some of the most impressive wines I have ever tasted from Randy and Mike Dunn. The wines are a bit richer and riper than in the past, but they also have plenty of the Dunn signatures readers have come to expect. I followed the 2017s over several days, and they just got better and better over time."
