JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Wednesday, January 27, 2021
A full-bodied red with aromas and flavors of dried violets, blackcurrants, cloves and some crushed gravel. Chocolate and caramel, too, yet it stays fresh and polished. Firm, fine-grained tannins. Try from 2023.

This has an intriguing mix of loganberry, plum and açaí berry fruit flavors stitched together with hints of warm mocha, tar, tobacco and melted licorice. The long, lush finish will have lots of fans. Drink now through 2030. 1,076 cases made. (James Molesworth)

A broad, fleshy and lengthy wine, 100% varietal, this wine is dark and brooding in black cherry and cassis, with complementary accents of crushed rock and cocoa powder. Toasted oak and vanilla round out the plush finish. (Virginie Boone)

DESIGNATIONS

From the Producer

This 2017 Leonardini Estate wine is a quintessential Cabernet Sauvignon. It begins on the nose with rich, ripe red raspberries, blueberry compote, cassis, graphite, tobacco leaf, tar, and spice box. Its balance and mid-palate are most notable, providing long, plush tannins alongside its dense fruit character. On the palate, it delivers mixed berry pie, black plums, toasted walnuts, brioche, pencil shavings, and cedar on the finish. The beautiful underlying tannin structure, complexity, and ample fruit will evolve over time and age gracefully for 15–20 years.

Where It's From

District / Napa Valley

View more wines from Napa Valley

Napa Valley is California's -- and America's -- most famous and celebrated wine district. Located north of San Francisco, Napa Valley is most famous for its world-class Cabernets and Chardonnays. The region's acclaim officially took off following a 1976 tasting in Paris when renowned judges chose a Napa Chardonnay and Cabernet over top French wines made from the same grapes.

Most wineries in the region produce either a Chardonnay or a Cabernet, and usually it's both. Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel are also grown with success in Napa Valley. You'll likely recognize the names of some of the viticultural areas within Napa Valley, including St. Helena, Stag's Leap and Carneros.

Region / California

View more wines from California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

Country / United States

View more wines from United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is sure to make Dunn fans happy. Powerful and ample, it marries the natural intensity of the year with the savoriness that makes Howell Mountain Cabernets so distinctive. Dark blue/purplish fruit, graphite, spice, leather, dried herbs and lavender imbue the 2017 with striking intensity and character. I can’t wait to see how it ages. The 2017 is a positively stunning edition of the Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Aug 31, 2021
Fresh ripe cassis, blackberry and plum fruit flavors course through, carried by tar and apple wood notes that are well-embedded, giving this a muscular but sleek feel. Features a great tug of dark earth and licorice snap on the palate-staining finish. Best from 2023 through 2038. 2,700 cases made. (James Molesworth)

A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Cabernet Franc from the redder iron soils in the center of the vineyard, the 2017 Tench Vineyard EE Red Wine is another incredible wine in this lineup. Deep purple/black-colored, with mineral-drenched notes of blackcurrants, ground herbs, earth, graphite, and crushed rocks, it has an “iron fist in a velvet glove” style on the palate, loads of tannins, good acidity, and a big finish. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP9696 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 11th Feb 2021
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Proprietary Red EE Tench Vineyard (a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot) strolls out of the glass with nonchalant savory notes of beef drippings, sautéed herbs, pencil lead and tapenade with a core of warm cassis, black cherry compote and redcurrant jelly. Full-bodied, densely packed, serious and savory in the mouth, it has firm, chewy tannins and a lively, long finish. 1,451 cases were made.

Big in structure, this full-bodied wine shows moderate cherry and blackberry flavors and a surprisingly light midpalate before tightening up a bit with tannins on the finish.

Sports tasty flavors of cassis, plum reduction and boysenberry preserves that stay focused and fresh, lined with anise, apple wood and bramble along the way. A bit toasty on the finish, but there's enough fruit to handle it; just let this unwind with some light cellaring. Best from 2024 through 2033. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 5,444 cases made.

Vibrant, fruity nose of ripe plums, raspberries, mulberries, licorice and nutmeg. Some chocolate orange, too. It’s medium-to full-bodied with creamy tannins. Plush, round and succulent. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)

Whitehall Lane’s 2019 Merlot Napa Valley actually contains 87% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot. Slightly candied cherry notes mark the nose, framed by vanilla and touches of dried tobacco, while the medium to full-bodied palate is succulent and juicy, textured without being overly rich or tannic.

This ultra-smooth and layered blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Zinfandel offers rich, creamy flavors of milk chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla surrounding a core of black cherries and raspberry syrup. It is handsomely oaked, light in tannins and comes off slightly sweet on the finish. (Jim Gordon)
