    Winemaker Notes
    This wine has ripe fruit, acidity, balance and great quality. There is some viscosity in the mouth, and the barrel influence is well integrated.


    98: Vinous
    The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a towering majestic wine. Rich, powerful and yet massively tannic, the 2013 possesses a stunning combination of super-ripe fruit, bright acids and plenty of supporting structure. In the early going, the Howell Mountain is a bit reticent, especially next to the Trailer, but after several hours, the vibrancy of the Howell Mountain bottling dazzles. Dunn's Howell Mountain Cabernet is without question one of the wines of the great 2013 vintage.

    98: James Suckling
    The blue-fruit and floral character are phenomenal here with hints of lavender and violets in addition to walnuts. Full-bodied, yet tight and reserved with extremely polished fruit and chewy tannins. Love the austerity. Tension. Drink in 2020.

    97: Decanter
    Aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry, rich earth, spice and liquorice are followed by a palate of striking persistence and structural amplitude. In 2013 this is typically large-scaled, fresh and built for the long haul, but Mike Dunn’s thoughtful changes to the estate’s barrel programme have resulted in more refined tannins. Brettanomyces issues that plagued the Dunn wines about 15 years ago also seem long gone, so nothing should compromise their lovely evolution in the cellar

    97: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain boasts an opaque color, abundant notes of blackberries, spring flowers and blueberries, fabulous richness and a distinctive, singular smell of pen ink. With great intensity, formidable body, sweet tannin and a long finish, it should drink well for 25+ years.
    Barrel Sample:95-97 Points

    91: Wine Spectator
    A rustic, hearty style that’s not shy about extraction, density or oak, offering a che1wy mouthful of graphite- and lead pencil–shaded dark berry flavors. On the finish, this shows potential, delivering persistence despite the extracted tannins. Best from 2018 through 2030.
