Dominus, 1997 Estate Bottled 1.5L
Origin: Napa Valley, California, U.S.A.
Blend: cabernet sauvignon (87%), cabernet franc (9%), merlot (4%)
Producer's Notes: The 1997 Vintage has a deep ruby color and aromas of very ripe black currant, spices and mineral overtones. It exhibits power and elegance and finishes with substantial but silky rich tannins. A luscious and dense wine, it is delicious to drink now with a great aging potential.
The 1997 blend includes 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Merlot. The balance between the three varietals was excellent and no Petit Verdot was added to the blend.
As with all Dominus wines, we recommend decanting this wine prior to serving to allow it to develop its full potential.
