1986 Dunn Howell Mountain - 95 pts!
Two of the most impressive wines in these tastings both of Dunn's 1986s tasted like 3-4-year old Cabernets rather than 10-year old adolescents. The opaque purple-colored 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain offers awesome richness mindboggling intensity huge tannin a massive mouthfeel and a closed yet formidably long well-endowed finish. This wine could be put in a tasting of 1994 California Cabernets and not stand out as a 10-year old wine. Give it another 5-7 years of cellaring and drink it over the subsequent 25-30 years ... amazing! The tasting notes for this section are from two single blind tastings one conducted in May 1996 in California and the other in June 1996 in Baltimore. RP
