The WineDominus, Napa, USA 1991
All Dominus wines to date, including the 1991, originate solely from the Bordeaux varieties grown at Napanook Vineyard. The 1991 is composed of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, complemented by 19% Cabernet Franc and a small amount of Petit Verdot.
The 1991 Dominus has a deep ruby color, and possesses extraordinary intensity and balance, as well as phenomenal richness and fruit. The wine exhibits silky tannins with a full-bodied palate and an elegant, long finish.

Dominus is the one producer for which I have a complete vertical going back to their inaugural vintage in 1983. I drank my first bottle of 1991 Dominus over 15 years ago and it was also the first bottle I decanted for more than 10 hours.
I can still taste the finish – it’s one of the best 5 wines I’ve ever had! I hope to open a 40-year or 50-year vertical one day with a group of close friends and Edouard Moueix at the head of the table.
