    Here we have a Dunn Howell Mountain Cab from a softer and more approachable vintage, for those of you who don't have the patience or the time to wait for the 2005 (or the 97, for that matter) but want an introduction to this classic California producer. Dunn is famous for tannic wines of great ageing potential, and though 04 is certainly structured, concentrated, and terroir-driven, it is a more more open-knit style and frankly awesome today. The supple cherry and cassis flavors on the mid-palate are framed by firm but balanced tannins and the wine constantly changes in the glass. This is something you could be safe opening tonight for a special occasion, but (as indicated by just how much better it gets with air), you could easily cellar this baby for a long, long time.

    First of all, I am incredibly biased towards the wines of Dunn. One of my favorite wines ever was the 1987 Howell Mountain. What to say here? These are dense wines full of black fruits, anise, cocoa and cassis. While it is a mouthfull of wine in its youth, it will age magnificently for the next 20 years or more and morph into its trademark elegance. Well worth every penny.
