Full and dense but wonderfully balanced with firm and silky tannins and a persistent finish. Dusty texture. A wine so balanced that you want to drink it already. Better in 2017.

Today all of the glorious fruit of the vintage is hiding behind a serious wall of tannin. The 2009 still possesses gorgeous inner perfume and plenty of sweetness but little of the sexiness that will emerge over time. From time to time the utter genius of the 2009 shows a glimpse of its potential. There is little doubt the 2009 will be a jewel once it awakens from what might very well be a long slumber. This is another wine that begs for patience. The 2009 is 86% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039. 97+ -Antonio Galloni

(blended with 10% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot): Good ruby-red color more saturated than the Napanook. Knockout floral lift to the aromas of black raspberry blueberry blond tobacco almond and mint. Suave savory and extremely precise with penetrating flavors of dark berries licorice minerals and cocoa powder. The petit verdot component acts as an amplifier of aromas and flavors notes winemaker Tod Mostero "like a good seasoning." Medicinal in a Bordeaux way. The finishes shows outstanding length noteworthy juiciness and firm noble tannins. A great vintage for Dominus.

Delightfully harmonious given its intensity with complex aromas of savory herbs flowers ripe and dried currant and berry crushed rock and cedar flavors. Well-proportioned focused and persistent.

While this is not the best Dominus vintage it does show elegantly smooth tannins dryness and earthiness that accompanies the black-berry and cassis fruit.

While this is not the best Dominus vintage it does show elegantly smooth tannins dryness and earthiness that accompanies the black-berry and cassis fruit. It's curiously soft which might limit its ageability. Shows an uncanny similarity to the 2000.
