This 2002 was virtually perfect when I tasted it in early May. Even better than I predicted seven years ago this 4500-case blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon 8% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot has blossomed beautifully revealing even greater intensity and potential than I predicted. A flawless seamless integration of tannin wood alcohol and acidity is found in this dense plum/purple-colored Dominus along with copious notes of sweet black currants interwoven with kirsch forest floor unsmoked cigar tobacco new saddle leather and forest floor. Full-bodied with velvety tannins stunning elegance and a 45-second finish this sensational 2002 rivals two of the all-time great wines made at Dominus 1991 and 1994. It is hard to believe that proprietor Christian Moueix's Dominus Estate has already celebrated its 25th anniversary and is moving toward 30 years with the 2012-2013 vintages. The 2002 will drink well for another 20 years.
