Dominus Napa Valley Red 2000
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Christian Mouiex lowered the price this year. The glut or the vintage? This Dominus is almost as good as the' 99. It's not a lavish blockbuster, but the cassis and herb flavors are delicious, and well oaked. The prettiest part is the mouthfeel, all soft and velvety. Shows plenty of class and elegance.
Attractive for its display of balance and appealing flavors, built around plum, herb, leather and coffee. Turns dry and tannic on the finish. Drink now through 2008. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
