Dominus Estate Dominus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2000

$199

Bright, full medium ruby. Highly complex nose combines plum syrup, minerals, tobacco and shoe polish. Lush, full and fleshy, but with terrific minerally verve underneath. Strong flavor of black plum... A distinctly adult-styled Bordeaux blend, with excellent length and grip. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media

Really need to give time to decant. 2+ hours. Velvety soft structure but still hints of the youthful power. Reminiscent a Clerc-Milon

Wow. Delicious. Much richer and new world in style than the 88 which was tasted in conjunction.

Haven’t had this top of class of 2000 in awhile. It so outperforms most of that vintage. Tannins are perfect. Lush red fruit that lingers forever. Spent a little time tending the vineyard and decided to treat myself. WOW!!! Only two bottles left. Boo

Elegant. Tannins are still firm. Stewed fruits, leather, currants, cassis. Some forest floor. Beautiful wine.

2001 Dominus CS. Boy G at HB w B&K K. Drank this after the '99 Grands Echezeaux. Total gear shift, but unlike the previous wine, this drank as we had hoped. Interesting comp to the '97 Sassicaia, which was our fave of the night. This was super green and I guess we all just favored the flavors of the Italian.

I wasn't sure about this one as we bought it a "little later in life" - but I was pleasantly surprised by the nose and the cork was in great shape, do it must have been store just fine. Drinking it was even better! Paired this with a lovely ribeye and mushrooms. Yum!!! It was great!

Absolutely excellent. Even with 15 years in the bottle there was some spice, beautiful plum and coffee with fantastic balance.
