Description 

Dunn Howell Moutain Cabernet. A vibrant, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose displayed highly aromatic dark ripe plums, blackcurrant, sun-dried tomato and black-raspberry jam. A number of tasters noted a hint of reduction. Classic new oak characteristics of bitter cocoa, mocha, nutmeg \. clove, espresso, menthol, rosemary and black pepper. A gravelly dark earthiness is barely detectable behind all of the dense fruit and oak; with 5 years careful cellaring these characteristics should taste more present. The tightly focused finish is very long, complex and in perfect balance with acidity, fruit ripeness and tannins. Additional notes: Almost every taster offered different descriptors leading me to believe that the wine is somewhat overwhelming. Many believed this wine to be a rogue placement ie. not a Dunn Vineyards wine. It is such a profound wine, with so much power, I'.m sure that the group found its potential difficult to judge. It was described as monstrous similar in nature to Frankenstein'.s creation \. assessors may have been influenced by first impressions of structure and weight and found it difficult to dig deep and discover more . the wines complexity was hidden deep in the core and it needs time to emerge.
