Dominus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1983

I’m not sure if it’s the age, but the balance of this ‘83 is quite amazing. The fruit may be slight past it’s prime but it’s kind of like drinking velvet, if velvet was a liquid. There’s a tiny bite at the end that’s a bit surprising. — a day ago

Dominio de Pingus

Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2003

One of the most stunning & beautiful wines I've ever enjoyed, and I've tasted many of the worlds best wines over last 30 years.

Château Canon-la-Gaffelière

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Really fun bottle and in surprisingly good shape. First time having an old right bank. Had it next to the 1996 Dominus, which would be my preference. — a year ago

Château Lynch-Bages

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Served blind with the 99 Dominus. This was really singing & their best wine since the great 89/90 vintages. Rich & dense berry fruits with cedar, leather, graphite & tobacco — 6 months ago

Ramey Wine Cellars

Sonoma Coast Syrah 2013

Winemaking posts at Rudd, Dominus, Chalk Hill & Matanzas Creek, David Ramey & his wife, Carla began their own label in 1996. Rich deep ruby red. Aromas of powerful dark fruit, hints of pepper and sweet spice reminiscent of a Northern Rhône. On the palate raspberry and blackberry, soft and velvety, with smoky oak, big spice on the finish which should continue to develop for several years. Very Nice! — 8 months ago

Harlan Estate

Napa Valley Proprietary Red Blend 2003

A completely different wine than the Dominus. This was full throttle and slams you back in to your seat with its G forces. So ripe, almost over the top; but it decelerates just in time and the finish is so succulent it lingers in your mouth forever. Filled to the tip of the cork with graphite and teeth staining purple fruit. This is the malevolent bastard child of a young Colgin IX Syrah and 2000 Chateau Pavie. Gobsmacker. — a year ago

Awesome note. Had a 93 almost 4 months ago and noted that it was starting to lose its grip, although still had quite a bit of power. Sounds like this one was perfectly in the window!
