90–92 pts. Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate: February, 2005
The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa, which all comes from Howell Mountain, possesses deep, dark, primordial, blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with notes of flowers and minerals. It is impressively built, rich, and intense with the gorgeous fruit purity evident in all the Dunn Cabernets. Anticipated maturity: 2007–2020+.
90 pts. Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar: Jan/Feb 2007
Good bright ruby. Rather inky aromas of cassis, iron filings, graphite, licorice root and minerals. Ripe flavors of dark berries, sassafras and minerals; not particularly sweet but more accessible today than the Howell Mountain bottling. Finishes with serious, slightly dry tannins and very good length.
