The 2003 Dominus has turned out even better than I thought from barrel. There are 4800 cases of this 88% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot blend.

There are 4800 cases of this 88% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot blend. A big sweet nose of roasted coffee Provencal herbs black currants cherry jam plums allspice and forest floor is followed by a spicy rich full-bodied fragrant intense wine. The tannins are sweet but noticeable in this beautifully complex strikingly aromatic 2003. It has much more similarity to a great Bordeaux than anything from Napa Valley. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025.

Suave and lush in the mouth with explosive flavors of currant and graphite. Quite suave and pliant offering excellent balance and full broad well-buffered tannins. This is just over 14% alcohol. The non-decanted version showed aromas of plum redcurrant mocha and nutty oak and hints of tobacco leaf and licorice in the mouth. Though it was tighter and more firmly tannic it also showed considerable early complexity. This distinctly claret-like vintage may well merit an even higher score with six to eight years of bottle aging. 92(+?) points
