Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is still in barrel and looks to be a 25- to 35-year wine. It is much softer than one normally expects from the old classic vintages of Randy Dunn, but the son seems to be trying to build more approachability into the wines without sacrificing any of their sheer concentration and extract. Blue and black fruits, earth, truffle notes, camphor and creosote are all present in this big, juicy, succulent mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that should be approachable young, hit its peak in 10-15 years and last 25-30.
VinousInky blue/purplish fruit, graphite, lavender, grilled herbs and smoke run through the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Howell Mountain). The 2014 has all the Dunn signatures in its flavor profile, but in the mid-weight style of the year. This is an especially restrained, young wine for Dunn with far less of the tannic heft that readers familiar with these wines are likely to expect.
