Lot #993. Dominus Estate 1985

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 95 RP.
"I have had this wine twice over the summer, and both times the wine was dazzling and beginning to open up. Just to prove I am not the only person to think Dominus has more than a casual resemblance to a Bordeaux, at one tasting I hosted, several French wine amateurs who did not know the identity of the wine thought it was Trotanoy! The blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc produced a rich Dominus, with superb color and a huge, blossoming nose of black cherries, spicy oak, herbs, and cedar scents. In the mouth, the tell-tale characteristic of the 1985 vintage, crisp acidity, as well as profound concentration, are well-displayed. This is an intense, large-scaled Dominus..." Wine Advocate #82, Aug 1992
