Dominus Estate Napa Valley 2007 91+ Points

The 2007 vintage is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot, showing a ruby red with slight purple rim.

Clean, high intensity, still youthful with blackberries, dark cherries and red plums, earthy with just the perfect oak influence.

Dry with moderate plus acidity, fresh high tannin lending a ripe grip, fruit follows through, lifted by the high alcohol of 14% abv, juicy and broad texture, creamy, need time, best from 2018+ until 2023+
