Moueix Dominus 2000
Wine Advocate #150 (Dec 2003) The impeccably made 2001 Dominus boasts a dense plum/purple color in addition to a fragrant, promising perfume of cocoa, cedar, coffee, roasted herbs, and copious quantities of black fruits. There are 7,000 cases of this 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot blend. Rich and medium to full-bodied, with sweet but noticeable tannin, a layered mid-palate, and a long finish with obvious tannin, it will require 3-4 years of cellaring. It should last for two decades.
I bought this to celebrate a good couple of months at work and didn't really dig this wine. Perhaps I drank it too soon when it needed a bit of hanging on to, or perhaps I didn't decant it well or long enough. I found it to be very tight, stringent and overly alcoholic tasting.
External Reviews for Moueix Dominus
Good full medium ruby. Slightly dusty aromas of currant and licorice, with an exotic dried fruit note. Fat and sweet but firm and closed; rather minerally today but not yet showing much complexity. Perhaps not as structured as the '99 but finishes fi... Stephen Tanzer. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2000 Dominus Estate Napanook Proprietary Red Wine 750ml
Wine Spectator ReviewAttractive for its display of balance and appealing flavors, built around plum, herb, leather and coffee. Turns dry and tannic on the finish. Drink now through 2008. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
...If conveying impressions of ripeness and mass in the nose, this blunt and loosely defined wine is never especially articulate in fruit, and its passing notes of black cherries on the palate fade away too soon to dryness and a bit of heat...
