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.
The Tepusquet vineyard is part of the Jackson familys holdings in the Santa Maria Valley, in the Santa Barbera district. This is very impressive and dedicated wine-making, hand harvested and elevated with 28% new oak, resulting is a compote of black fruits and spice tinged mocha. Great with baby back ribs.
