International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 132

($115) Deep red-ruby. Deep but reticent aromas of dark raspberry, cocoa powder, hot rocks and minerals, with notes of menthol and wintermint. Very firmly built and backward, conveying a tightly coiled spring for a 2004, and an almost Saint-Estephe-like menthol austerity. Though a bit tough and youthfully green, this firmly structured wine is quite aromatic on the back and opened nicely with aeration. Give this a lot of time in the decanter if you plan to open a bottle anytime soon.

Jancis Robinson Author: Linda Murphy

Straddles the Napa-Bordeaux horse, with well-ripened, dark cherry fruit and sweet vanillin oak melding with dusty herbs, forest floor, cedar and tobacco notes. Marvelous concentration and depth; firmly tannic, yet also generous. Could be Christian Moueix’s best Dominus. (LM)$115

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 168

The elegant, dark plum/purple/garnet-colored 2004 Dominus exhibits a big, sweet, cedary, roasted herb, mocha, black cherry liqueur, black currant, and earth-scented perfume. Medium to full-bodied with silky tannin as well as a luscious mouthfeel and finish, it should be more accessible in its youth than many of its predecessors, but easily last for two decades.

Firm, tight and concentrated, with dried currant, black cherry and wild berry fruit that's well-structured, finishing with a tight core of tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 5,600 cases made.

Vinfolio Author: Vinfolio Team Issue: 155

It seems I try this label only once or twice a year, but I have found a lot to like in the 2004 recently. It has a muscular weight to the nose with a seductively concentrated cedar, currant and spice that melds into the mocha and sweet cherry found on the front of the palate, leading into finely-wrought flavors of black currant, delicate sandalwood and a soft finish

Solid dark fruits, with an undercurrent of mint. Tannins are fairly smooth right now, making this wine to enjoy with a great meal. Enjoy now, or wait a few years. Not built for great aging.
