K&L Notes

99-100 points Robert Parker for Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Dominus is a blockbuster...A wine of great body, purity and richness, but the balance of a ballerina, this gorgeously lush, voluptuously textured Dominus should drink effortlessly when released and evolve 30 more years, as his older vintages are proving so well...The 2015s are certainly going to be one of his all-time great vintages, rivaling 2013, 2012, 2007, 2002, 2001 and his earliest classics, such as 1994 and 1991."

    Dominus continues to set the benchmark as one of CA’s finest Bordeaux blends. The first thing I noticed about the 2015 Dominus was the finesse, balance, and drive. The fruit, body, texture, tannins, and acids are all in complete harmony. There is incredible tension that keeps the wine fresh and penetrating. Deep, brooding, and complex nose with black and red fruits, wild herbs, light earth, and dark spices. Only hinting at the potential here, there is so much material here yet to develop. Outstanding.

    Tasted at the property after a three hour decant. As usual, it is much more brooding and compact than the Napanook next to it. It makes Dominus more challenging, but all the better for it. Gentle aromas of black/blue fruit and tobacco lead to a cool, poised, and polished palate filled with deep red fruit (plum, cherry, currant) and balanced acidity. This incredibly dynamic wine is crafted with only 40% new oak and shows none of it. It keeps providing nuance and layers as it opens up in the glass. Although it is not as dense as the '13 or open as the '12, it should be in the conversation among those greats as a wonderful Dominus of the highest regard - different for sure, but all the more interesting for it.
