Description

    Dominus Estate 1999
    Bottle (5)


    "The firm, austere, large-scaled 1999 Dominus (7,000 cases) is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 9% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot that spent 16-18 months in 40% new French oak. It exhibits an attractive perfume of roasted herbs, coffee, tobacco, and sweet black cherries and plums, medium body, noticeable tannin, and a ripe, austere personality." (88 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #142, Aug. 2002)

    "Medium to deep garnet colour. Dried cherry, mulberry, loam, espresso and tobacco aromas with a hint of dried mint. On the palate a savoury / meaty character comes through. A firm backbone of high acidity and a medium+ level of firm tannins give good structure. Medium to full bodied, very long finish." (91 pts. Lisa Perrotti-Brown, In Asia, May 2010)


    Estimate: $450 - $550.
