Unit price/ per
This signature wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from Dunn's estate vineyards on Howell Mountain. The wine is matured for 32 months in 100% new Frenck oak. The wine comes in a distinctive bottle that is hand dipped in red wax and makes an impressive gift that can be cellared for years to come or enjoyed in its youth with a proper decant. Pair with braised short ribs.
The unique Howell Mountain AVA within Napa starts at an elevation of 1400’ so even when it is cool and foggy on the valley floor, it is sunny and breezy up on the mountain. This bottle epitomizes the style of an iconic mountain Cabernet: deep concentration, bold structure, massive, ultra-rich and yet elegant.

"The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a total knock-out. What a wine. In some recent vintages, the Napa Valley Cabernet has been a bit light, but in 2017 it boasts tremendous richness, power and depth. Plush dark fruit, gravel, dried herbs and spice all flesh out in a decidedly intense, kicked up Napa Cabernet. Give it a few years for the baby fat to melt away. This is such an impressive wine."
