Dominus--Vintage 1997
Napa Valley
In original wooden case
"The 1997 Dominus, a blend of 86.5 Cabernet Sauvignon, 9 Cabernet Franc, and 4.5 Merlot, is showing fabulously well. With 14.1 alcohol and a pH that would make many New World oenologists shudder (about 3.95), this wine is a fleshy, silky-textured, opulent wine with a gorgeous nose of roasted herbs, coffee, jammy black cherry and plum-like fruit. Asian spice, licorice, and blackberry and cherry notes with tobacco spice all add to this complex, very involved, yet gorgeously symmetrical Dominus. The wine is medium to full-bodied, very concentrated, and silky-textured. It is gorgeous to drink now, but should age easily for 10-15 years." Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #132 (Dec 2000)
