Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, August 1996
Two of the most impressive wines in these tastings both of Dunn's 1986s tasted like 3-4-year old Cabernets rather than 10-year old adolescents. The 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is still tight but it reveals more openness... Two of the most impressive wines in these tastings both of Dunn's 1986s tasted like 3-4-year old Cabernets rather than 10-year old adolescents. The 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is still tight but it reveals more openness and gobs of sweet mineral-laden black-raspberry and cassis fruit. The fruit dominates the wine's structure a positive sign given all the wine's tannin and body. Rich pure and youthful this 1986 is accessible now but will unquestionably last another 20+ years. It is a profound well-balanced Cabernet with well-integrated acidity and tannin. The tasting notes for this section are from two single blind tastings one conducted in May 1996 in California and the other in June 1996 in Baltimore.</P>
