2004 Dominus, Christian Moueix, Napa, California (6 x Bottle)

USA California

(14.1% alcohol): Bright, dark red with ruby highlights. Superripe but highly complex nose exudes scents of blueberry, violet, minerals, licorice, game and cocoa powder. Plush and seamless on the palate, conveying a wonderfully silky mouth feel to the dark fruit, coffee and licorice flavors; less animal in character than some other very ripe vintages of Dominus. This wonderfully suave, sweet, youthful wine finishes with slowly mounting, very fine-grained tannins and considerable class.

Vinous

Good ruby-red. Slightly reduced, superripe aromas of plum, chocolate, licorice and fresh herbs, with briary and medicinal nuances. Then dense, sweet and firmly structured, with plum, spice and tobacco leaf flavors firmed by an herbal element. Conveys an impression of strong fruit of moderate ripeness. Rather powerfully tannic. Some very tannic cabernet sauvignon barrels were recently added to give the wine more freshness, noted Champy, who said that the tannins in 2004 are riper and sweeter than those of 2003, and more thoroughly buffered by fruit. The pH here is 4.0, the highest ever for Dominus along with the 2001 release. This is denser than the 03, but will it live longer?
