The Wine Independent: 100 Points

Composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon 4% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot the 2019 Dominus was harvested from September 29 to October 10. It was aged in 40% new oak. Deep garnet-purple colored the nose slowly unfurls to unveil beguiling floral notes of candied violets and rose oil over a core of crème de cassis blackberry pie and plum preserves giving way to notions of licorice Indian spices iron ore and crushed rocks. Full-bodied the palate is jam-packed with taut muscular black fruit layers intertwined with gorgeous floral and exotic spice accents and framed by firm finely grained tannins with seamless freshness finishing long and mineral-laced. Tightly coiled with so much latent energy waiting to explode this is a spectacular expression of the vintage and Napanook vineyard. Still tightly coiled give it a good 6-7 years in the cellar before broaching and allow it a few hours in a decanter if consumed before 2032. 3500 cases were made to be released in May 2022.
