Winemaker's Tasting Notes: A vivid expression of its unique site, Dominus is a profound and powerful wine, exemplifying purity. With articulated fruit and polished tannins, the wine has elegance, complexity, great length and improves with age.
"Aromas of blackcurrants, black cherries, hints of graphite, wet earth, and lavender. Sandalwood. Full-bodied with an impressive and refined structure that runs deep and vertical in the wine. Chewy. Hints of chocolate and hazelnut at the end. Needs five or six years to soften."- James Suckling.
"An excellent wine, even if not a great Dominus, the 2020 Dominus delivers waves of dark fruit—think predominantly cassis. A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, it's full-bodied and richly textured, perhaps a bit warm and open-knit because of the summer's heat, but with a long, velvety finish attractively tinged with mocha and dark chocolate."- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
"A wonderfully pure version, with the cassis and plum reduction side taking the lead throughout. Refined and seductive, with a caressing feel as shades of warm earth show through on the finish. Very expressive and not nearly as tightly coiled as the ’18, ’16 and ’13, but a very impressive showing for the vintage. Cabernet Sauvignon with Cabernet Franc."- Wine Spectator.
Varietal: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc.
