2005 Dominus - Dominus Napa ValleyCalifornia, USA
|Label Name||:||Dominus Napa Valley|
|Sub Region||:||North Coast|
|Capacity||:||750 ml - Standard Bottle|
|Rating||:||RP 95 - Robert Parker Wine Advocate||Tasting Note||:||The 2005 Dominus continues to strut its stuff, tasting like a Napa hybrid blend of a St.-Emilion and Pomerol. Its dark ruby/purple-tinged color is followed by notions of cedarwood, spice box, roasted herbs, sweet black cherry and cassis fruit, licorice, and truffles. Full-bodied with excellent fruit intensity, complex aromatics, supple tannins, and a long finish, this 7,000-case blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot should drink well for two decades or more. When I am tasting at Dominus, they always present a wine opened the day before and decanted, and one just opened, and the extended aeration version always seems to be the better example of the wine, so plenty of decanting seems to be in order. 95+|
