Notes from the Winemaker:
Feather is a vibrant, dynamic wine that possesses deep crimson color, supple tannins and balanced acidity. Expressive aromas and flavors of dried Bing cherries and bittersweet chocolate are complemented by hints of red pepper and thyme that gain focus on the mid-palate and add appeal to the wine’s long, layered finish.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - James Suckling:
"This is a regal cabernet with a very buttoned-down feel to the nose and palate. Well-judged fruit ripeness underpins fresh blackcurrant and plum aromas and flavors, as well as handsomely long, sturdy tannins.”

97 Points - Jeb Dunnuck (2015 Vintage):
"“Its inky purple color is followed by a seamless, pure, impeccable balanced Cabernet that has loads of currants, scorched earth, graphite, and espresso aromas and flavors. Deep, rich, gorgeously pure and polished, with building tannin, it's a heavenly Cabernet Sauvignon that has everything you could want. It’s the finest vintage to date of this cuvée and is capable of lasting for 20-25 years.”

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage):
"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Feather is lovely, unfurling in the glass with aromas of cassis, blackberries, petroleum jelly and burning embers. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ripe and powerful, with an expansive attack and an ample core of dark berry fruit, underpinned by a fine-grained, stony chassis of ripe tannins. This wine is made by Howell Mountain veteran Randy Dunn, and its profile—while marked by the torrid 2015 vintage—will be familiar to followers of the wines he produces there." - William Kelley (Jun 2018)

93 Points - James Suckling (2015 Vintage):
"Beautiful aromas of blackberries, black olives and flowers follow through to a full body.Round, silky tannins and a delicious finish. Shows tension and focus. Try in 2020." (May 2018)
