Dominus Estate Dominus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2001

$349

The impeccably made 2001 Dominus boasts a dense plum/purple color in addition to a fragrant, promising perfume of cocoa, cedar, coffee, roasted herbs, and copious quantities of black fruits. There are 7,000 cases of this 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot blend. Rich and medium to full-bodied, with sweet but noticeable tannin, a layered mid-palate, and a long finish with obvious tannin, it will require 3-4 years of cellaring. It should last for two decades.

Modest showing for a profound wine. A slightly tannic and drying tail was the sole detractor from a perfectly balanced, wonderfully integrated and cassis-laden gem.

A little tried on the first sip but 45 minutes in it is dark plum with leather and a cigar box finish that last 15 - 20 seconds. That said time to drink ‘em.

First bottle in our Dominus vertical from ‘01 to ‘13 at Formento. It didn’t get any better as this was the consensus WOTN. 2001 Napa Cabs remain awesome.

Fine integrated tannins combined with a plush core of blackberry fruit, lead pencil, coffee grounds and sweet licorice. This was truly phenomenal. Not fading in the least. Powerful and dense with a velvet smooth sexy finish.

Impressive but still sooo young. I hope to revisit many times over the next 10-30+ years.

2001 - in a great drinking window right now. Still plenty of fruit.

Great bottle. More like Burgundy than Cabernet. Needs time to open in the glass.
