Dominus Estate Napa Valley Red Wine 1999 is the last vintage of the century that will be remembered for its exceptional quality. This vintage has characterized by its exceptionally long growing season - a season where patience eventually paid dividends in the form of wine with outstanding character and complexity. It is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 9% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot aged in 40% new oak.
This 1999 vintage is beautifully harmonious with inviting color and a full body. This Bordeaux Blend starts with a delicate entry of black cherry aromas, evolving toward impressively structured tannins. The long, fragrant finish reveals spicy notes and a hint of cedar. This wine is built to age. Christian Moueix recommends decanting this wine before serving, to allow it to develop its full potential. It is especially important when serving young wines. Enjoy!
