    May 16, 2017 - Dunn Howell Mountain Vertical B-day Dinner (Maple & Ash): A fairly lush and giving nose with loads of leafy tobacco, cedar and damp earth notes. Palate is lush and ready to go. Nice layering and earthy complexity. Good now, though not as intense and nuanced as many of the other Dunn HMs tonight. Don't expect this to get better, though it should hold.

    May 16, 2017 - Dunn Howell Mountain vertical (Chicago, IL): Each flight has to have a weakest wine, and this was the weakest of the 95-93-91 flight. It showed a little unbalanced, with a lot of vegetal elements and some ungainly stemmy qualities as well. The black fruit didn't seem to be here at all, and the tannins and acidity seemed to jut out a little bit. However, this still managed to hold onto the signature well enough.

    April 22, 2017 - Celebrating our 24th anniversary with this great Howell Mountain Cabernet. Still lots of fruit and thick tannins. Very enjoyable, seems like this could go for many more years.

    April 19, 2017 - In a perfect spot now. A little forest floor on the nose. The secondary flavors are kicking in right now and I'm getting leather and cigar box. This is both elegant and complex.

    March 18, 2017 - For a 24 year old wine this still looks very dark. Ruby red in color with only slight signs of brick-age on the edges. The nose is totally cigar box and cedar. Could easily be a 1st growth Bordeaux. This is a very well structured wine on the palate. The fruit and oak are totally integrated but the tannins are still very strong. Great complexity and mix of flavors. The finish is smooth, long and complex just a great example of what an aged Dunn should taste like.

    (Dunn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain) Group's #6 (my #2) – 45 pts.; 1, 1, 0, 2 – dark red violet color; seductive blend of cassis, eucalyptus, mint, blackberry and mineral nose; tasty, tart cherry and cassis palate, very youthful, with sweet firm tannins; medium-plus finish
