Dominus Estate Dominus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2007

$295

...A prodigious example of Dominus, the 2007 represents a hypothetical blend of a Pomerol, Pauillac, and a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep ruby/purple-colored with a sweet nose of incense, cedar wood, black currants, black cherries, licorice, and a subtle hint of roasted herbs, it is an expansive, savory, opulent wine with a full-bodied mouthfeel, silky tannins, and sensational concentration. A legend in the making, it should evolve for 25-30 years, possibly longer given the fact that his vintages from the early eighties are still going strong, and the wines today are better made given Moueix-s Napa experience and the estate winery he did not have 25 years ago.

Showing very well. Slight fruit fade but still really vivacious. Red licorice, clove and cassis.

Trial stars dinner Friday night. This is probably the best Dominus I've had other than the legendary '91 and '94. Elegant, lush beauty.

So elegant with a long life ahead of itself. I wish more Napa Valley Cabernet were like this

Still a baby but starting come around. Blind I'd probably say it was Bordeaux.
