  • 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.

  • 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.

  • At Bobby Van's with Steve K. Decanted for about 30 minutes, drank over an hour. Drank next to an 01 Staglin Cab.

    Consistent with last notes: "This bottle was Right Bank meets California - which is the Dominus signature experieince...Nose of dark fruits, floral notes, pencil/graphite. Palate is dark cherries, cassis, tobacco, forest floor, anise. Tannins are resolving - still present suggesting a log arc in front of this."

    The decant really benefits this wine, it kept getting bettr over the time we drank it. Elegant and layered finish. In a great spot right now

  • Big, fat and delicious. Classic Dominus profile with bold black fruits. Solid from entry to finish. In a great place right now and should easily drink wonderfully for 10 more years. 1st bottle from my 6 pack.

  • From magnum. Beautiful bold colour. Amazing nose of cedar, spices, black fruits. Beautiful depth and balance. A very long finish. Drink over the next 10 to 15 years.
