    Description

    Dominus Estate 1990
    owc
    Bottle (6)

    Property of a Charlottesville lady. Wines removed from both professional storage and free-standing cave units at home.

    "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. In retrospect, I suppose I was somewhat surprised by just how great the 1990 performed in comparison with the profound 1991. I mistakenly thought the 1990 was a Medoc, with its cedary, spicy, tobacco, blackcurrant-scented nose, sweet, full-bodied flavors, high tannin, and low acidity. It is a superb Dominus that may be just beginning to close down. Rich and powerful, it is capable of lasting for 20+ years." (95 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, Feb. 1997)


    Estimate: $900 - $1,200.
