    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 1996 Vintage exhibits a deep garnet robe with ripe flavors of blackberries, dried cherries and hints of violets, allspice, vanilla and tobacco. Silky tannins and a long and complex finish balance its warm, luscious and elegant body.

    As with all Dominus wines, we recommend decanting this wine prior to serving, to allow it to develop its full potential.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Medium garnet-brick color. Complex, evolved aromas of black olive, dried cherries, bacon fat, graphic, balsamic, soy and a touch of truffle. The palate is finely knit with crisp acidity and a medium level of very fine tannins pulling together fruit a well balanced amount of earthy / savoury fruit. Very long finish.

    The Wine Advocate

    Good deep red. Inviting aromas of roasted plum, black raspberry, coffee and woodsmoke, plus hints of chocolate, loam, narcissus and game. Very sweet, supple and full in the mouth, with flavors of redcurrant, plum and cedar. Gives an impression of lower acidity than the '97. Very long on the finish, with substantial, dusty tannins.
