    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 1991 Dominus has a deep ruby color, and possesses extraordinary intensity and balance, as well as phenomenal richness and fruit. The wine exhibits silky tannins with a full-bodied palate and an elegant, long finish.

    As with all Dominus wines, Christian Moueix recommends decanting this wine prior to serving, in order to allow it to develop to its full potential.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very deep garnet-brick colored, this has pronounced aromas of sweaty saddles, dried mulberries and game with a hint of dried Mediterranean herbs. The palate is more youthful than the nose, revealing a rich, full bodied style with crisp acid, a medium-firm level of chewy tannins and tons of savory fruit, finishing long.

    The Wine Advocate

    Very saturated dark red-ruby. Youthful, supercomplex aromas of plum liqueur, currant, brown spices, leather and chocolate, plus an ineffable animal/vegetal/mineral element. Wonderful penetrating sweetness in the mouth; dense, thick, very intensely flavored and pungent. Sharply delineated. Perhaps not quite the sheer size of the '94. Finishes extremely long and focused, with fine tannins and a note of superripeness.

    International Wine Cellar

    Wonderful complexity and youthfulness, from the initial aromatics to the follow-through on the finish. Serves up a mix of complex currant, tobacco, earth, brick, mineral and cedary tobacco. Holds its focus and finishes with a long aftertaste without being too heavy or tannic.--'81/'91 California Cabernet retrospective.
