Dominus Estate Red Wine Napa Valley

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2007 Vintage) Cedar, spice, red apple, currant, plum and earth nose. Restrained and rustic with grippy tannins, lots of fruIt, sweet tobacco and cedar spice. Superbly proportioned.

    (From 2006 Vintage) Rating: 93/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 10/09. Youthfully floral and tight, this vintage of Dominus is a big wine that holds all of its weight behind a powerful structure. And it's the power of that structure that is front and center-red apple-skin acidity and walnut-skin tannin-needing a ribeye with plenty of fat to bring the fruit out of its cage. Stay with it and the wine's earthiness begins to meld with the blueberry and chocolate richness. But it's all completely primary. Put this away for ten years, and drink the Napanook while it matures.
