Second bottle in our Dominus vertical from ‘01 to ‘13 at Formento. This was not as great as the ‘01, but clearly favored over the ‘03 and ‘04 in the first flight. One of our favorites of the tasting.

Enjoyed our last full day at the resort, and we topped it off with another visit to Seven Glaciers. The food, the wine, the views...stellar!

What a treat to get to enjoy some of this! I believe this was a 99 pointer. Still drinking so beautifully. Tannins are well integrated and there are no hard edges here. Deep ruby in color, with sage, dried cranberry, blackberry pie. If you have any of this, don't miss this drinking window!

Candied red fruit, beet juice, a bit on the sweet side. Soft tannins. Pleasant with some complexity. But a bit past its prime, perhaps.

Nice sweet oak on nose lots of rich full palate. Dark fruit shorter tannins/finish. Lots of dark chocolate. Still has many years left. 3-6
