1997 Dominus Estate Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend


95 points Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar: “Saturated
ruby-red. Multidimensional nose offers a panoply of scents: black plum,
currant, leather, smoked meat, cigar ash, lead pencil, sandalwood, dark
chocolate, licorice, brown sugar. Very bright and sharply defined;
flavors of plum, leather, hot stones and lead pencil. An impeccably
balanced wine of compelling sweetness, but rather dominated today by its
structure. Strong, thoroughly ripe tannins spread out to coat the
entire palate. Very long and subtle.” (May/June ’00)

94 points Robert
Parker: “he 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. ” (12/00)

93 points Wine Spectator: “A wine of
substance and depth. Dark, rich and polished, with complex notes of
earthy, meaty currant, anise, spice, cedar and leather, fanning out on
the finish. Young and concentrated. Better than previously reviewed.
Best from 2002 through 2012.” (11/00)
