Dominus Estate Dominus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2005 (1500ml)

$435

...Blending the best of French savoir faire with the brilliant fruit purity and ripeness of Napa Valley, Moueix has turned in another tour de force that seems far superior today than it did when it was first released. This is one of the vintage's greatest wines. Dense purple and youthful, with a glorious nose of earth, blackcurrants, sweet black cherries and incense, the oak is pushed way in the background, as it is in all of the Moueix wines, and the result is a wine of terroir, of great originality and authenticity. This full-bodied classic from Dominus can be drunk now..and last at least another two decades or more. Robert Parker

Good structure, evolving fruit, solid mid palate but drops off on the finish. #dominus

Absolutely stunning. Beautiful Bordeaux style napa cab that tasted and smelled as if it came right out of France. Perfectly balanced, silky smooth, long finish, with great fruit but clearly allowing the terroir to come through. Loved this!

A guest rejected this. Sound and gorgeously structured. Perhaps the tobacco leaf notes turned them off?

Lean, green and spiced. Dried blackberry fruit with firm tannic structure. A solid version of a Bordeaux from Napa.

A delicious fineness wine...truly a California Bordeaux. Nice balance, great structure, and many more years of life left in this one...

This is still a beast. Two hours in the decanter and still bold. Deep purple in color with beautiful dark fruit and the Bordeaux style earth flavors that make us great.
