    July 31, 2020 - Decanted 2+ hours. A very good wine. Last bottle 5 years ago was much more primary. Now it's ready to drink with enough air. 94+ pts. at the moment.

    July 19, 2020 - This wine can stand up to the best examples of any Bordeaux wines, including first growth, proof that in the hands of a talented winemaker, Napa can produce world class wines. Very deep garnet. Clean nose of pronounced intensity. Aromas of cooked plums, cedar, black cherry, vanilla, forest floor, cured meat, wet leaves. Wine is fully developed. Palate: dry, medium plus acidity, well integrated medium tannins, medium alcohol, medium plus body, pronounced flavors dark chocolate,cooked plums, cedar, toast. Finish is extremely pleasant and long. Very good wine, in its prime now and can be aged further.

    May 3, 2020 - You gotta love this wine. Drank it twice from the same bottle: evening and next morning. And way better the next morning: Striking lovely intense cherries iso grapes. You would swear there are cherries in the fruit itself, its that intense. Delicious on the palate, rich but with style. Not Bordeaux at all, very Napa. In the window right now but for sure a much longer future.

    April 11, 2020 - What a great bottle of wine! California cabernet is often too sweet and gets the prune descriptor as a major note. Dominus has the Bordeaux like backbone that I prefer.
