1992 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #300015 95 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1992 Dominus is similar in style to the 1990. It exhibits an open knit, opulent, rich, easy-going character with gorgeous levels of earthy, cassis fruit intertwined with scents of herbs, coffee, and chocolate/mocha ice cream. Rich and full-bodied, with thick, viscous flavors and low acidity, this is a forward, exceptionally concentrated, easy to understand Dominus that should drink well for 20 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/1995)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The 1992 Dominus is gorgeous, bursting from the glass in a blaze of mentholated black cherries, loamy soil and forest floor, and following through on the palate with a compelling marriage of bright fruit and a supple, expansive texture. The cooler vintage has made for a great deal of aromatic complexity and capacity to refresh, without losing any Napa generosity. Delicious wine. (WK) Inner quote mark (11/2016)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 1992 Dominus has a strict and (unsurprisingly) very Bordeaux-like nose with fine definition, tobacco, melted road tar and graphite emerging almost reluctantly with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a grainy structure, a bit 'gruff' perhaps, good depth with just a touch of dryness towards the finish. Perhaps just a little more rigidity than I would have preferred, but this continues to drink well. Tasted at the 'Judgement of Clapham Junction' dinner in London. (NM) Inner quote mark (10/2021)
