1986 Dunn - Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Howell Mountain
Bottle in nice condition. Good fill level. Wax top starting to shows cracks
Interesting site of a tasting on Dunn's wines
Two of the most impressive wines in these tastings, both of Dunn's 1986s tasted like 3-4-year old Cabernets rather than 10-year old adolescents. The opaque purple-colored 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain offers awesome richness, mindboggling intensity, huge tannin, a massive mouthfeel, and a closed yet formidably long, well-endowed finish. This wine could be put in a tasting of 1994 California Cabernets and not stand out as a 10-year old wine. Give it another 5-7 years of cellaring and drink it over the subsequent 25-30 years ... amazing! -- Robert Parker
PREVIEW: Will go on Auction at Ebay January 3, 2008.
