    2014 is the most underrated Napa vintage of the decade. Having been sandwiched in between two highly lauded, and successful campaigns, the '14s never took off like they should have. The reality is that 2014 was an incredible year - perhaps there was just too much noise surrounding the neighboring vintages - and Dunn's Howell Mountain bottling is a shining example of the heights that the vintage quietly achieved. Loaded with plush notes of blackberry, creme de cassis, cedar, and a hint of graphite, this wine perfectly encapsulates everything that makes 2014 the sleeper vintage that it is.

    I had the good fortune to taste this gorgeous 2014 at the property. While such experiences tend to color one's impression of a wine, I can say with confidence that this Howell Mountain Cab would show equally as well from a Dixie cup at a truck stop—it is just that good. In my humble opinion, Dunn crafts THE benchmark for Howell Mountain Cabs. It is big and burly, while at the same time at sophisticated and refined, offering everything one could want from a classic Napa Cab. Dark berry fruit is wonderfully accented by notes of cedar, pine, baking chocolate, and fresh herbs. Still very youthful, its tannins are pronounced, showing the promise of a very long life. Anyone who appreciates the best in Napa Valley will definitely want to pick up this epic red. A tour de force if there ever was one.

    The 2014 Dunn Howell shows excellent purity and intensity. The 2014 showcases the wild Howell mountain Cabernet character with black and blue fruit, wild herbs, lavender, and graphite. The tannins are rounder and more textural than the traditional ‘vin de garde’ style of Dunn. Mike Dunn’s hard work in the vineyards, production, and cellar is impressive and Dunn remains one of my favorite CA Cabernets over the decades. Bravo!

    Bright red fruit lines complex and intriguing aromatics on Dunn's flagship 2014 Howell Mountain. It is extremely silky on the palate with focused acidity, and compelling bright but textured plum, cherry, and currant. Like the Napa, it is very elegant and accessible, but there is an elevated depth, density, and refinement that shows through on this bottling. Another great collectible in the classic, old-school mold, try to wait a few years before opening and enjoy over the following fifteen years.
