1992 Dunn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #300255 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/1995)

K&L Notes

Here's more detail on the 1992 Napa cuvée from Robert Parker's 1994 review: "The 1992 Napa bottling reveals a black/purple color, and a fabulous nose of jammy cassis fruit, herbs, and spices. Full-bodied, phenomenally rich and concentrated, but softer than expected, this behemoth of a Cabernet should drink well for 20-25 years. Although Dunn has produced many great Cabernet Sauvignons, I am going out on a limb to predict that the two cuvees, Howell Mountain and Napa, will rival, if not eclipse anything this superb producer has previously made. Dunn's Cabernets, which are always opaquely-colored and massively-endowed with both extracted fruit and high tannin, appear softer and more approachable in a low acid year such as 1992."
