(2012 Vintage) Known for its complexity and balance, Dominus demonstrates the potential of a wine produced on exceptional terroir. Structured, seamless and perfectly integrated, Dominus is an elegant wine that improves with age. We recommend decanting the wine prior to serving, to allow it to develop its full potential, particularly when serving young dominus wines.
Wine SpectatorRating: 92/100 - As reviewed by Wine Spectator.

International Wine CellarRating: 88/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 104, September/October 2002. (tasted at Dominus) Good full red. Expressive aromas of plum, currant, maple syrup and licorice. Leanish and firm on the palate, with raw currant and tobacco leaf notes. Losing its flesh. Narrows toward the end, finishing with somewhat hard-edged tannins but good persistence. Seems slightly past its best.
