"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Trailer Vineyard exudes serious richness and intensity. Unctuous dark fruit, mocha, blueberry, spice and cloves build as this voluptuous, huge wine shows off its personality. The Trailier is an unusually racy wine by Dunn standards. Mike Dunn picked this fruit a little bit riper than is common for the other wines and did not remove alcohol. The result is a flamboyant, opulent wine endowed with dazzling textural richness. Trailier is Dunn's original Howell Mountain vineyard. This parcel was replanted after the 2013 harvest. " (VM)

"Aromas of rose petals, currants and dark chocolate. Black fruit. Full-bodied, layered and gorgeous on the finish. Fantastic length and excitement. About 300 cases. Available in 2019. Will be so beautiful on release. Last vintage before replanting." (JS)

Winery Notes:
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.
