Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines73% 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.
