In a blind tasting both the 1990 and 1991 wines were identified as being French by all eight tasters. I pulled these wines from my cellar to insert as ringers so I was particularly miffed at not getting their origin... In a blind tasting both the 1990 and 1991 wines were identified as being French by all eight tasters. I pulled these wines from my cellar to insert as ringers so I was particularly miffed at not getting their origin correct. In retrospect I suppose I was somewhat surprised by just how great the 1990 performed in comparison with the profound 1991. I mistakenly thought the 1990 was a Medoc with its cedary spicy tobacco blackcurrant-scented nose sweet full-bodied flavors high tannin and low acidity. It is a superb Dominus that may be just beginning to close down. Rich and powerful it is capable of lasting for 20+ years.

Deep red-ruby. Knockout Bordeaux-like aromas of cherry syrup plum chocolate mocha and brown spices plus a faint vegetal complexity. Sweet smooth and ripe if not quite as dense as the extraordinary '91. Excellent acidity... Deep red-ruby. Knockout Bordeaux-like aromas of cherry syrup plum chocolate mocha and brown spices plus a faint vegetal complexity. Sweet smooth and ripe if not quite as dense as the extraordinary '91. Excellent acidity gives the flavors lovely clarity. Finishes firmly tannic and very long. Extremely suave wine.

Deeply flavored rich and complex with tiers of currant coffee spice and chocolate. While it's young intense and tannic it's developing a supple texture which allows the flavors to glide through on the finish...Best after...
