Dominus, 1995 Napanook Vineyard 1.5L
Origin: Napanook Vineyard, Napa Valley, California, U.S.A.
Blend: 80% cabernet sauvignon, 10% cabernet franc, 6% merlot, 4% petit verdot
Producer's Notes (in 1999): the 1995 Dominus shows intense ruby color and ripe, handsomely balanced flavor. Lively and fresh, the nose has hints of raspberry. While tannins are present — as expected in so young a wine — their exceptional suppleness makes them discreet. With a few minutes in the glass, the wine evolves nicely and is very enjoyable to drink now.
As with all Dominus wines, we recommend decanting this wine prior to serving, to allow it to develop its full potential.
