1996 Dunn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1074497 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The opaque blue/purple-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa boasts an exceptional nose of creme de cassis, minerals, and spice. It takes at least a decade for wines such as this to begin to reveal more identity and vintage character. The cassis/blackberry liqueur-like fruit are present, as are mouth-searing levels of tannin and impressive extract. This blockbuster should be at its peak between 2010-2040. (RP) Inner quote mark (1/2000)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full ruby-red. Superripe aromas of currant, loam, smoke, roast coffee and tobacco. Lush and silky in texture but not yet showing its complexity due to an edge of acidity. More red than black fruit flavors. Doesn't have quite the consistent ripeness of the '97, but the tannins are ripe and the flavors quite persistent. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2000)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Tightly wound, with firm, crisp tannins wrapped around a core of currant, black cherry, wild berry, cedar, anise, sage and spice. Finishes with enough tannin to merit short-term cellaring. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/1999)
