Randy Dunn established his reputation as a top class Cabernet Sauvignon producer as winemaker at the renowned Caymus estate in the 1970s and early 1980s. Since 1979 he has been producing a mere 5000 cases a year from his Howell Mountain winery.
His vineyards lie on red-stony soil which is mixed occasionally with volcanic ash. They are situated high up on Howell Mountain, above the famous Napa Valley fog - growing conditions are cooler and windier, although night- time temperatures are warmer and the grapes often ripen ahead of those on the valley floor.
The wines are matured in French oak barrels (40% new) for 30 months. They are huge, dense, massively structured Cabernet Sauvignons that demand extended bottle ageing. The patient are rewarded with some of the most concentrated, rich and cassis-laden wines that rival the very best Californian Cabernets for longevity and sheer quality.
