Dominus Napa Valley 2005 (RV)
The 2005 Dominus continues to strut its stuff, tasting like a Napa hybrid blend of a St.-Emilion and Pomerol.
Its dark ruby/purple-tinged color is followed by notions of cedarwood, spice box, roasted herbs, sweet
black cherry and cassis fruit, licorice, and truffles. Full-bodied with excellent fruit intensity, complex aromatics,
supple tannins, and a long finish, this 7,000-case blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, and
3% Petit Verdot should drink well for two decades or more.
