Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain El Camino 2018

$300

Dense, dripping with pastis-soaked plum, blackberry and black currant fruit flavors that are fresh overall, showing tantalizing mulled and steeped facets as well. Offers melted licorice and tar details that drive underneath the fruit, carrying the flavors through a lengthy finish, where violet, roasted apple wood and savory hints fill in the background and provide superior range. Remarkably vivid and detailed from start to finish despite its heft. Best from 2024 through 2042. 292 cases made.
