Dominus Estate 1997 1.5l

Wine advocate - 94: reviewed 12/00: the 1997 dominus, a blend of 86.5% cabernet sauvignon, 9% cabernet franc, and 4.5% merlot, is showing fabulously well. With 14.1% alcohol and a ph that would make many new world oenologists shudder (about 3.95), this wine is a fleshy, silky-textured, opulent wine with a gorgeous nose of roasted herbs, coffee, jammy black cherry and plum-like fruit. Asian spice, licorice, and blackberry and cherry notes with tobacco spice all add to this complex, very involved, yet gorgeously symmetrical dominus. The wine is medium to full-bodied, very concentrated, and silky-textured. It is gorgeous to drink now, but should age easily for 10-15 years.
