CORAVIN- Stunning. As close to classified growth Bordeaux as Napa Cab gets IMHO. Haut Brion or Graves/PL. Nose is to die for. Great red fruit. Needs time but wonderful now.

Dark purple color, good clarity. Purple fruits on the nose with a hint of menthol. There is good balance, nice fruit, and a long finish. Definitely tastes like a Napa wine, made in a Bordeaux style, by a Bordeaux producer, in Napa. I am going to drink my last bottle in 2 or 3 years. Would probably last for 10.

6/27/2015 - sunnylea57 Likes this wine: 95 points

Big, complex nose with mushroom and dark earth, plum, black fruit, meat, pencil lead, menthol and other notes I couldn't identify. Plum, back fruit, cocoa powder, pencil lead, bramble, and a little green pepper on the palate. Good acidity level, nicely resolved tannins.

A different experience than the ’92 or ’94. It comes across a bit rounder and plummier than early 90s Vintages, but it's not fat or over the top. It's refined and nuanced.

This bottle was in a perfect place. I can't see much room for improvement. Your mileage may vary.

Beautiful and mature bouquet with still some cassis and a good dose of barnyard. On the palate a mature wine with chocolate, soft acidity and also soft, somewhat drying tannin. Quite mature and several in the group were not that much impressed, but I still could appreciate the wine for its luxury components and elegance. We probably had a bottle that hasn't been stored properly, but I nevertheless scored it 92. Leaving me wonder what a perfect bottle would score.

Mgmt Presentation Dinner at Canoe. Was fairly muted on the nose. Hard to get much out of it. The palate had a bit more substance. Nice structure and tannins. Not overpowering, but not overly complex either.

Wines that Rock (Craig & Nita's Place): Very dark red color with a very subtle 2-3 mm bricked margin. Slow-O in the cellar for about 3 hours and probably another 2 hours by the time we got to it. I'll be the first to admit that I am so enamoured by these older, mature, evolved, well preserved, magnificent examples of wine and winemaking regardless of where they're from that it is becoming increasingly harder to be satisfied by anything else. This bottle was from the same source as the previous bottle I had tasted last fall and was perfect condition despite a fully saturated cork and some mold on the top. I've gotten to the point where these corks don't really even phase me anymore...much anyway. I could just sit and inspire these aromas all night long. The gorgeously perfumed smell wafts about, potpourri, florals, leather, sandalwood, elegant cassis, mild funk and earthiness, dark berries and soy reduction. The palate is sophisticated, balanced, leather, funk, cassis, dark berries, subtle graphite, silky tannins that are nicely folded in and a very long finish. Medium full body with fruit and depth that belies its 31 year age. There is so much life to give; if the bottle is well stored this could can go 10 more years. 96+ to 97pts.

6/18/2015 - RickyT12 Likes this wine: 93 points

Splash decanted.
Ruby color
Nose is great.
Nice French nose aspects. Strawberry, cranberry, a bit of vegetable, cedar,lot of heat, but nice. A bit of heat, vanilla mixed with strawberry, cherry and chocolate mixed with baking chocolate. Acid a bit high, weight is light. Quite French in characteristics with a bit more heat. Nice wine, but I think it is in a bit of a weird transition phase. I would let it sit for another 3 or 4 years.

Herbs, spices, smoke, tobacco, shrooms, truffles, slight reduction/musk going on which is intriguing and sort of Bordeaux-like. Moderate in weight, great balance, very good, holding up well.

Still seems a bit closed even after a slow ox of 2-3 hours. Opened up over the evening but I was opening for a bit more fireworks. Would probably hold off again for 2-3 years.

I second the view expressed in the note below - its exactly as stated. People I tasted it found it very impressive - this 2004 Dominus is definitely very underrated and im glad I still have a few bottles.

Maturing wine with some bricking and the opacity associated with aged Bordeaux. The nose is amazing, very Right bank in ripeness of the red and blue berries, with tertiary notes of nutmeg, chocolate shavings and some dustiness - quite intoxicating. The palate is smooth yet bursting with fruit and nicely round with a dose of oak that is not too heavy. Finishes long and begs for more. This is truly outstanding stuff and rivals the '04 Insignia for best values in The upper echelons of Napa

This wine has aged beautifully. No sign of deterioration. Rich, deep red, full bodied, aromas of berries, flavors of currants, berries, liquorice, vanilla. Medium tannins give it structure. Needed about an hour to open up.

1990 Dominus Estate

Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend more

6/7/2015 - fclarity wrote: 94 points

From a great looking bottle(bottom neck), this wine had a red/purple center with some orange at the rim. The medium+ intensity nose offered up blackberries, cherries, mocha, and soil.

After 4 hours of air, the wine was rich and ripe with rounded tannin and excellent length. This feels like a Pomerol and has no hint of the subtle Provencal herbs that I would expect.

While this is in the early part of its drinking window, my guess is that it will improve with 5-10 more years in the cellar. Thus, it may well pick up a point or two in the future.

Fell short of the great performance from last October's bottle; perhaps a storage provenance issue, and/or just a less than perfect cork seal. Either way, it was good and certainly had its moments where it was very good, but just not enough of them.

WCC 1990s California Cabernet Blind Tasting (Dorato's Resturant, Guilderland, NY): [Double-decanted at 11am.] Ripe, sweet, fragrant red fruit nose. A touch of cedar. Others think it may be a Bordeaux ringer. I think it is Dominus! [pat myself on the back] Group #2 WOTN.

This is a very enjoyable wine. Smooth classic Cabernet blend with lots of fruit flavors on a medium finish. Complex blend of red and black fruit with a touch of cedar on the finish.
