    Winemaker's Notes:

    Made with a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and 4% Cabernet Franc.

    The 2005 Domus Aurea has a dazzling ruby color and an earthy, balsamic nose with hints of orange zest and chocolate. Aged for 18 months in French oak and another 18 months in the bottle, the Domus is juicy, concentrated, and balanced, with fine, well-integrated tannins. Outstanding with grilled lamb, mushrooms and sweet red peppers.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark and concentrated, with alluring mint, cocoa powder and loam notes covering a muscular core of dark currant confiture and warm fig. The long, well-structured finish drips with terroir and character. The best vintage yet. Young winemaker Jean-Pascal Lacaze has settled in nicely here.

    Arguably the best Domus to date. This wine is super-complete and remarkably individual. It has that classic Macul-area aromas of black olive and tobacco, but the fruit from this great vintage is elevated and pure. Look for graphite, tar, cassis, cherry and chocolate all rolled into one fine, ageable package. It’s Cabernet from Chile in all its glory.

    Dense black plum hue. Forward scents of eucalyptus, blackberry and mocha with secondary nuances of espresso and tomato leaf. Viscous, creamy flavors of blackberry and plum. Muscular yet polished tannins emerge in the endless close, echoing blackberry, mocha and leather.
