Dominus Estate Dominus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1990

$225

This spectacularly complex, rich wine magically combines the finest elements of Napa Valley (strength, ripeness, and full body) with those of Bordeaux (finesse, elegance, and complexity). The opaque dark ruby/purple color suggests considerable intensity, low yields, and great richness. A huge, soaring bouquet offers aromas of cassis, black-cherries, subtle herbs, vanillin, and spices. This full-bodied, voluptuously-textured, super-concentrated, multi-dimensional wine is more flattering and opulent that previous Dominus vintages, which tended to be tannic as well as rich. Although approachable and already complex (I have already consumed three bottles), the magnificent 1990 Dominus should evolve gracefully for 20-30 years... Robert Parker

1990 vintage - powerful wine with strong red cherry and coffee flavors. Sweet pepper and underbrush. Very nicely balanced mid palate and finish.

Finely grained wine. Like a well matured and patina'd chair cut from quarter sawn white oak. Napa from the time of giants.

Excellent claret. Great typicity and herbaceous, mineral driven tannin profile. Easily mistakable for Pauillac.
