The impressively saturated black/purple-colored 1992 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a softer, plusher texture than the 1991. The nose offers more evolution in its cedar, tobacco, blackcurrant, smoky aromas. The wine possesses a wonderful inner-core of sweet fruit, and a multi-layered personality. Rich and full-bodied, with sweet tannin in the finish, this is a generous, full-bodied, youthful yet accessible Cabernet that should drink well for 20 more years. In tasting through all of Abreu's commercially available wines, I was struck by how consistent in quality they are. The exceptional 1991 and 1992 have been followed by phenomenal wines in 1993, 1994, 1995, and 1996. Most of these wines are 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance Cabernet Franc. The only exception is the 1995, which is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. The wines are worth owning; I am putting my money where my mouth is.
