Tasting Notes: 

While being a classic, bold Howell Mountain wine, our wine also shows an elegance unusual for the varietal. Dense inky purple and blue in color. Aromas of cocoa, cumin, mulberry, and baking spices mingle with wild berry compote. Full and rich on the palate, with a blueberry core and gingerbread spice. An age-worthy cellar star.

Vineyard History:

The four-acre Park Muscatine vineyard was originally planted in the 1890s and has stood as a sentinel on Howell Mountain for more than a century. DNA testing shows that most of the vines are the Durif clone of Petite Sirah, and some are Peloursin, the original cross with Syrah that produced Durif.

Los Abuelos vineyard was budded in 2005 by Mike Dunn with budwood from the original Park Muscatine vineyard, has a great deal of Peloursin in it, and is part of the Dunn estate, next to the winery on Howell Mountain.

Retro Cellars

Angwin, California

When Mike and Kara Dunn decided to make a wine of their own, they knew that they wanted to honor the history of the vineyard as well as their families foundations in the Napa Valley wine industry. The historic Park Muscatine vineyard on Howell Mountain was chosen in part because Mike has known this vineyard since his childhood, pruning the vineyard in winter, and harvesting the fruit in the fall. With its scant ton per acre production, this vineyard is a gem. They chose the Retro name to pay homage to the generational groundwork that’s been laid for their endeavor, and with a vision for continuity in the future literally illustrated by the artwork on the label, which came from the hand of their then 11-year-old son, Alex. Alex, now 23, is a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute, and a part-time cellars hand at Dunn Vineyards and Retro Cellars.
