Expert Reviews

95 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2012

(blended with 10% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot):  Good ruby-red color, more saturated than the Napanook.  Knockout floral lift to the aromas of black raspberry, blueberry, blond tobacco, almond and mint.  Suave, savory and extremely precise, with penetrating flavors of dark berries, licorice, minerals and cocoa powder.  The petit verdot component acts as an amplifier of aromas and flavors, notes winemaker Tod Mostero, "like a good seasoning."  Medicinal in a Bordeaux way.  The finishes shows outstanding length, noteworthy juiciness, and firm, noble tannins.  A great vintage for Dominus.

The coolness of mint, mineral tones, and muscular tannins coalesce to create an otherworldly gustatory experience, Fruit emerges after a while to remind the lucky taster about Cabernet Sauvignon at its best.

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay. From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
