Winemaker's Notes

(From 2001 Vintage) Superripe aromas of plum, cherry, licorice, mocha, smoke and minerals. At once sweet and gripping, with very intense, nuanced flavors of cherry, plum, currant, tobacco, minerals and currant leaf.

  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    73% Cab. Sauv.; 15% Cab. Franc; 6% Merlot; 6% Petit Verdot. It is not the biggest or boldest Dominus bottling to have come our way, but this latest release manages a bit of appealing richness and rooty complexity that fills out its slightly more modest dose of central fruit. Framed with ample tannins and a bit too tough for drinking anytime soon, it will never be a "juicy" wine in the classic Californian style, but it should find increasing range as it softens over the next five years.
