Wine Spectator ReviewA lighter style, with a supple, polished texture and some vegetal notes leading into cherry and plum flavors. Perhaps the lightest Dominus ever. Should drink well early, and does not appear to be a long ager. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Dominus Napa Valley Proprietary Red Wine 1995 93 Pts Robert Parker : WINE ADVOCATE REVIEW: 93 POINTS Christian Moueix and his talented winemaking team continue to rewrite the definition of a Napa Valley reference point wine. The 1995 Dominus (6,000 cases produced from a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot, and 4% Merlot) is a ripe, plummy, supple, expansively-flavored wine with copious quantities of black currant fruit. Full-bodied and low in acidity, it possesses exceptional concentration and purity. Qualitatively, it is built along the lines of the 1992 and 1990. While it is not as powerful or intense as the 1996 or 1994, the 1995 is a large-scaled, rich, concentrated wine that should provide splendid drinking for two decades.On what I suppose is a distressing note, I have noticed huge demand for Dominus in recent auction activity. At a Sotheby's auction on October 25, Dominus fetched prices of $23,150 for one imperial of 1991, and $10,450 for two 1991 double magnums. Although none of this is the fault of anybody at Dominus (blame Christian Moueix and his team for producing profound wine) if this trend continues, I wonder how any true amateurs will be able to afford the wine.DOMINUS NAPA VALLEY PROPRIETARY RED WINE 1995 93 PTS ROBERT PARKER
