The Wine

Nothing is easygoing about Randy Dunn's Cabernets, whether it's the dense red wax atop the bottle you need to soften to access the cork, or the uncompromising style that has become his trademark. … The quietly fierce nature of Dunn's wines has never been for all comers. But Dunn has always prided himself on being different.

— Jon Bonné "Randy Dunn's Cabernet crusade", SF Gate

The mountain really determined the style of the wine. It became obvious right away that the grapes up here were much more powerful than down on the valley floor. I just made the wine itself the same way we did at Caymus, it just was a more tannic wine due to the place.

— Randy Dunn
Vineyard view

Howell Mountain Cabernet

Our signature wine contains only fruit farmed by us here in our vineyards on Howell Mountain. The wine comes in a distinctive bottle that is hand dipped in red wax.

Napa Valley Cabernet

The Napa Valley wines are a blend of our Howell Mountain fruit and a small quantity of valley floor fruit that we purchase. This valley floor fruit contributes to the wine’s earlier approachability and softer tannic structure.

Both of our wines are 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 32 months in 100% new French oak.
