California

California produces about 90% of all wine made in America and contains some 1200 producers from boutique to massive global players. Although wine was introduced to California in the 18th Century by Spanish missionaries, the modern industry only dates back to the sixties. The region was put on the wine map when several Californian wines beat their French counterparts in the now-famous Judgment in Paris in 1976.

  • Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

    Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

    Howell Mountain is Dunn’s estate bottling of Cabernet Sauvignon. Their vineyards lie at 1400 feet above sea level, above the fog, so when it is foggy in Napa it is sunny on the mountain. However, despite this excess of sunshine, temperatures are cooler, especially at night. Grapes develop thick skins in this environment, and the Dunn style is to produce a wine that shows the power and structure of the mountain. Tannins require time to soften, but these wines have great richness, complexity and longevity.
