Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, $75.99-$94.99, 97 points, poured an inky black at the core trending blood-red toward the broadly clear rim and glass wall with heavy sheeting.
The bouquet of roses, jasmine, cedar, clove, cinnamon, mocha, blueberries and blackberries, and on and on was one of the best of my life.
Full-bodied with good acidity and layered sweet tannins complimented the cola, cherry cordial, and escalating spice notes with the reflective flavors of the bouquet.
Finished very long on those escalating spice notes, mint, licorice, violets, and a well integrated 13.9% alcohol.
