Dominus Wines Estate Red Napa Valley Methuselah In Wood Box 1991
Winery: dominus estate Style: Red Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend Region: Napa Very saturated dark red-ruby. Youthful, supercomplex aromas of plum liqueur, currant, brown spices, leather and chocolate, plus an ineffable animal/vegetal/mineral element. Wonderful penetrating sweetness in the mouth; dense, thick, very intensely flavored and pungent. Sharply delineated. Perhaps not quite the sheer size of the '94. Finishes extremely long and focused, with fine tannins and a note of superripeness.
Editorial Reviews for Dominus Wines Estate Red Napa Valley Methuselah In Wood Box
Clean and pure on the nose with a nice edge of vegetal funk up front and background notes of smoke and oak all over a very cassis driven core. This is decidedly varietal on the nose but note very California. In the mouth this is pretty soft with some fairly dry tannins still making their presence known. The fruit is soft and subtle with some dark, dried fruit notes that lead to a cinnamonny finish. Overall this promised more than it delivered and was rather dry and graceless. I have had better bottles of this, but they were all in the past. My last experience with this unfortunately mirrored this one. 84pts
Of course I love this wine. Great balance overall in taste and quality. Great nose and complexity. Yummy.
smoky and iron nose with a berry taste. A great wine from a great wine maker
Tasted 6 bottles over the years. Consistently being one of the top wine in my list. dark purple, bouquet of cassis and earth. well balanced tannin, fruit, and mineral/ leather.
just a great bottle of wine. classic nose of tobacco, cassis and leather. tons of fruit, taking it almost to the edge of overdone, but it brings it back from the edge with perfect balance. fantastic.

In a blind tasting, both the 1990 and 1991 wines were identified as being French by all eight tasters. I pulled these wines from my cellar to insert as ringers, so I was particularly miffed at not getting their origin correct. The 1991 is the finest ... Robert Parker.
