Strong tannins and acidity. Very hard to compare to the 2003, Christian's 20th vintage. Best to try again two years from now. When you get past your first nose your second nose will reveal the characteristic Dominus even more so with the distinct Dominus tasting qualities.
The wine is still a little tight and does not show well given 15 years age. Good plum color but it takes a good while in the decanter to begin to open up. I wish I had held it another 5 years although a decent wine as it now.
