The 1985 Dominus stands out for its smoky, ripe cassis, earthy nose, sweet, full-bodied, concentrated flavors, and opulently long, chewy finish. It was the most forward, precocious example of this wine I have yet tasted. Most recent tastings have suggested the wine needed further aging. This bottling exhibited the plush, velvety texture that proprietor Christian Moueix achieves in top Pomerol vintages. The 1985 Dominus should continue to drink well for another 15-20 years.
Rich and evenhanded. A touch of barnyard funk, but also some complex cedar, dried currant and mulchy Cabernet flavors that will appeal to some more than others. The tannins turn dry and leathery on the finish. Best to decant.--1985 California Cabernet retrospective. (Web-2005)
