    Winemaker's Notes:

    Vibrant & full-bodied. Highly aromatic nose. Classic new oak characteristics and savory notes of rosemary and black pepper. The tightly focused finish is very long, complex and in perfect balance with acidity, fruit ripeness and tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    I don't know whether it's me, the vintage character, or whether Randy Dunn and his son have intentionally softened their wines, but these 2004s are more opulent and up-front than previous renditions. Yet, they lack neither concentration nor richness. Those of us who have been cellaring Dunn’s wines for twenty years, waiting for them to reach maturity should be thrilled by this new development. The Howell Mountain is denser and richer with blacker fruits as well as more body. Both are full-bodied, powerful Cabernets very much in keeping with his style. However, the tannins are softer and the wines reveal surprisingly developed aromatics. The 2004 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon should last for 20-25 years. It is a brilliant achievement.

    Bright ruby. Urgent, high-pitched aromas of crushed cassis, minerals and licorice. Juicy, bright and pure, with sharply delineated flavors of cassis, bitter chocolate and licorice. Very lively wine with a firm underlying spine. Finishes with subtle building length and a fine dusting of tannins. Still quite tight and primary but not hard.

    (no pun intended) -- Dunn Howell Mountain as consistent as ever (been buying it for 10+ years now!)
