Dominus, Proprietary Red

100 pt Perfection!

This is, "a phenomenal red." James Suckling

The rate at which Dominus is producing 100 point scores is staggering.

Following their 2013 perfect scoring release, this perfect new release is the 2015 Dominus Estate Proprietary Red, another knock-out, California Cabernet blend.

Press is nice, BUT, the real test is what's inside the bottle?

We have tasted this new release and it is everything you could ask for and more!

Like prior vintages, it has a strong Bordeaux-like profile, which makes sense since Dominus Estate was founded in 1981 by Christian Moueix, the then owner of Château Pétrus in Pomerol. Ever since then, this California winery has been known for capturing the essence of premier Bordeaux.

"The Dominus 2015 Proprietary Red leaps from the glass with notes of fresh wild blueberries, crushed blackberries and black currant juice with touches of wild thyme, underbrush, iron ore and aniseed with wafts of lavender and pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has incredible energy and vivacity, with the firm, pixelated tannins and lively backbone skillfully framing the muscular fruit, finishing with wonderful length and depth." Wine Advocate

Ah, the ongoing Dominus Dilemma: To drink or cellar?

I'm doing both!
