Still some tannins and a good amount of fruit. I don’t think it will be any better with age .

From magnum. I don’t mind a hint of Brett but...(this has two-three hints).

Dunn...how do I love thee, let me count the ways. A gorgeous expressive nose of black olives, black cherries, dried red currants, cigar box, and bay leaf. The palate shows such refined elegance with medium+ body, fine grained tannins, bright acidity and a pronounced flavor intensity of black cherries, red plums and black raspberries well integrated with notes of black olives, dried oregano, bay leaf, cigar box, soft leather, and violet leaves. Each flavor pops and shines until the extremely long finish. People always ask me about my favorite Napa producers for long-term aging and Dunn is always at the top of my list!

Our good friends were kind enough to share this incredible wine wth us from their cellar!!! what can I possibly say about this wine that has never been said before. It is the epitome of opulence: Rich, dark fruit, bold yet seductive. I truly think the only way to enjoy a Dunn to its full potential is if it is 20+ years old. This was in full stride and was absolutely amazing! Thank you Bill and Jill! This was definitely my wine of the night in comparison to the Pomerol!

92' Mag tasted much better then the 750. The mag has got 15+ years left in it. We enjoyed this wine over a three hour plus party. Excellent effort!

One of Napa's greatest producers Dunn Vineyards. How I always love a wine that should be drank after decades of aging. This was still adolescent but beautiful. Howell mountain dark brambly fruit with great sensuality and finesse on the palate.

Dark, rich, tannic, this probably needs 20 more years of cellaring, kind of an outlier in this group??

I can not recall the last time I drank a '92 California Cabernet , additionally this is the most approachable Dunn HM I recall tasting. On the nose a potpourri of herbs, tobacco and leather. Full bodied in the mouth with smooth tannins buffering and onslaught of dark fruits.. A very nice extended finish is the icing on the cake for this terrific wine.
