Made in a more masculine style the 2008 Dominus has all of that along with bigger body and more structure fat density and texture. Both are brilliant wines and they represent the finest back-to-back vintages for Dominus since 2001 and 2002 or 1990 and 1991. Both the 2007 and 2008 Dominus should drink well for 25-30 years.

Very Bordeaux-like in its makeup and structure this firm wine offers good acidity and tight tannins delivering complex flavors of loamy earth vivid dried currant and berry with anise and mineral notes sprinkled in.

Very Bordeaux-like in its makeup and structure this firm wine offers good acidity and tight tannins delivering complex flavors of loamy earth vivid dried currant and berry with anise and mineral notes sprinkled in. My favorite young Dominus of late. Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2022. -JL

Good full red-ruby. Fresher on the nose than the Napanook showing raspberry plum mocha and tobacco aromas. Round and plummy in the mouth with a restrained sweetness to the flavors of milk chocolate mocha and licorice. ... Good full red-ruby. Fresher on the nose than the Napanook showing raspberry plum mocha and tobacco aromas. Round and plummy in the mouth with a restrained sweetness to the flavors of milk chocolate mocha and licorice. A wine of moderate ripeness for the vintage and in a shell today. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and notes of plum mocha and chocolate. I don't find quite the structure or grip of the best years.
