Food Pairings for Dominus Estate Dominus Proprietary Red Cabernet Blend
PRESALE --- EXPECTED JUNE 2010 [98 pts Robert Parker] The soon-to-be-released 2007 Dominus is a 5400-case blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. It is ironic that Christian Moueix the practitioner of utterly profound Merlot-based wines from St.-Emilion and Pomerol eschews Merlot from his Napa vineyard recognizing that it is Cabernet Sauvignon and to a lesser extent Cabernet Franc that hits the high notes in Napa. A prodigious example of Dominus the 2007 represents a hypothetical blend of a Pomerol Pauillac and a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep ruby/purple-colored with a sweet nose of incense cedar wood black currants black cherries licorice and a subtle hint of roasted herbs it is an expansive savory opulent wine with a full-bodied mouthfeel silky tannins and sensational concentration. A legend in the making it should evolve for 25-30 years possibly longer given the fact that his vintages from the early eighties are still going strong and the wines today are better made given Moueix-s Napa experience and the estate winery he did not have 25 years ago.
