Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Wine 1992

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

What makes the 1992 California Cabernet Sauvignon vintage so incredible is that one of its hallmarks is the voluptuous opulent and succulent nature of the fruit. In Dunn s offerings that translates into wines that are massive and rich but with sweeter more expansive chewy mid-palates. Both of these Cabernets are 20-30 year wines but I suspect the softer Napa cuvee will be drinkable in 5-7 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

This floor fruit contributes to the wine's softer approach, even though the wines usually can be laid down for 15+ years. Read less

Young and grapey a high-extract style with rich currant mineral leather and herb flavors. Finishes with a tannic wallop. Cellar. Best after 1998. 2 100 cases made. - Wine Spectator.
