The full bodied Grand Vin of the Dominus estate starts with elegant black cherry evolving towards well structured tannins. Early bottling has preserved more fruit character in this vintage. The Bordeaux style blend includes 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 9% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot.
This honeyed buttery white from sunny Californias Central valley, made from 75% Colombard and 25% Chardonnay has a lovely pear and pineapple infused nose, wityh plenty of ripe sweetness on the finish. It works well on its own or with some cheeses, cold buffets and some desserts.
This Chardonnay is produced from high altitude vineyards, and by avoiding the use of oak and malolactic fermentation, the character of the terrior is carried through on superb minerality.
