Decanted 45-min. Initial nose fairly complex with leathery undertones to the fruit and mild funk. Medium-light bodied and classic cab to taste. Disappointing that the nose and body faded quickly, even getting sour fruit by the end of dinner.

It was late, but this was solid out of the bottle, and improved a bit with some air. Very good, but feels like it should drunk up now. A-

Dark red. Lots of Cab Franc spiciness on the nose. Elegant, tannins starting to soften, great balance, red fruit oriented, really does integrate everything well. I really like it for the balance and harmony it possesses. Bridges the strengths of Bordeaux and Cali Cab.

Wonderful. Bordeauxesque. Nose is full of great spice. Great red fruit. Can franc is evident. Up front I get more Graves/Pessac and follow thru is more dried fruit. Love it.

4 hour decant. Decent enough wine but given the price/reputation I was a little underwhelmed. Nice, fruity bouquet on the nose but then a little too much oak on the palette and slightly harsh on the finish. I'll give my remaining bottles at least another 3 years before trying again.

Pop'n'Pour and consumed over an hour, this wine is as gorgeous as you would expect. I was surprised how accessible it was from the get go. I can't imagine it getting any better.

At 76% Cabernet Sauvignon this is softer than a Napa Cab but with 14% Cabernet Franc & 10% Petit Verdot it is more muscular than an 05 Bordeaux. Tar, cassis, and just a bit of dark fruits with a splendid but not too dry mouthfeel and medium finish. No discernible browning at the edges this wine still has some life in it. Can't wait to open the 07 version

Bouteille en parfaite condition, le bouchon lui s'est cassé en mille morceaux, ce qui m'a fait craindre pour la qualité du vin mais il n'en fût rien heureusement. Niveau entre bottom et into neck. Non décanté.
Magnifique nez sur les mûres et les prunes, puis une touche d'expresso.
En bouche le vin est souple et doux, facile à boire mais avec une légère trame acide qui lui donne de la complexité et une certaine légèreté.
Très belle longueur avec des tanins totalement intégrés.
J'avais conservé un verre pour le lendemain sans qu'il y ait de changement notable, juste un peu moins de fraîcheur forcément.

5/12/2015 - CV Griz Fan Likes this wine: 92 points

This medium bodied Cabernet blend has a nice nose of currant and fresh cut flowers.
The taste proflle is somewhat vegetal in nature with some bell pepper and fresh herbs rounding out the dark fruit.There is good balance to the wine. Obviously, it's very Bordeaux in it's approach but there is some nice fruit forwardness too. Not a bad effort at all. The price point is value driven IMO.

Decanted 3 hours. Poured dark red with no sediment. Drank half on Night 1. Firm tannins, medium body. Nose of cedar.

Night 2 was more impressive overall with more depth and fuller flavor. Will hold the remaining bottles as I feel this is a long distance runner.

Classic Dominus nose. Cassis, hard leather, black, blue and red fruits on nose and palate. Loads of complexity and depth, but the alcohol comes through too much and took this wonderful wine down a point for me.

Similar to prev note, on blind would have guessed Pichon Baron 89/90. Hard to choose whether it is better than the 1994, try both !

First day was all oak and tannin even after about an hour decant, probably an 88. I wasn't looking forward to it the next day but the second day was much better. The oak and tannin had settled down and and the fruit had moved forward and had integrated well with the oak, it was probably a 92. So this is a combined score. I haven't had this wine for nearly a year and a half and it rated about the same. The wine is beginning to throw some sediment.

Quelle chance de goûter à nouveau le Dominus. Après mon expérience du 1995 dans la vente Champlain Charest, j’ai été en mesure de retrouver ce vin de Moueix une fois de plus dans mon verre. Le 2001 dominé à 81% par le cabernet a été soumis à l’aveugle. On croyait que c’était du Bordeaux, mais comme l’a si bien lancé notre ami Louis Landry, c’est trop bon pour être du Bordeaux.

Ce vin de Napa riche et élégant est sans faille! Un rouge opulent et complexe au nez aguichant avec ses arômes de fruits confiturés avec des notes de caramel, moka, cassis et de sous-bois. Les qualités gustatives pour cette prodigieuse bouteille ne manquent pas de superlatifs. Long, ample et savoureux, le Dominus est une main de fer dans un gant de velours avec sa texture soyeuse et ses tanins encore bien ficelés. On en redemande encore…

Beautiful, complex and luxurious, almost classical bouquet with beautiful dark forest fruits and sweet spices. On the palate ripe dark forest fruits, some chocolate, beautiful acidity and soft tannin. Fully mature and plenty of future left.

4th Saturday group "uptown" tasting (Our house): Notes of cassis, blackberry and herbs. The palate follows the bouquet, adding hints of chocolate and violets. Lengthy finish. Guessed Napa Cabernet.

4th Saturday group "uptown" tasting (Our house): Crimson core with some light bricking. Aromas of herbs and dusty black currants, tobacco and red fruit. Flavors of iron, black and red fruits, spice and beef blood with a lengthy finish. Integrated and flat out fantastic, this is the wine of the flight. Guessed '95 St. Julien.

As soon as I sensed Bordeaux I should have considered the possibility that this was our Dominus, but I was so convinced this actually was Bordeaux.this was decanted off its sediment into a spare bottle 75 minutes before the flight was poured. I wish I had more than just the one.

Ouvert le matin et le bouchon était ultra sec !!Il a pêté en mille morceaux.Après avoir tout nettoyé, le vin a passé la journée dans la carafe à jouer.
Une tonne de fruits en bouche mais avez un nez discret.
Pas typique Calicab.Soyeux en bouche et pas trop alcooleux.
Le bois est présent mais correct.
Léger toffee à la fin de la soirée.
Vanille et bleuets aussi.
Il a encore une bonne dizaine d'année devant lui.

Decanted for 2h and paired with roast duck at 1862 restaurant. This is a beautiful full bodied wine. Copious red berry fruit with a touch of mineral character. Not much in the way of tannin. It is hard to see how this will improve much more with aging!
