Antonio Galloni 100 points - The 2013 Dominus is magnificent. When it might be ready to drink is another question entirely. Today the flavors are remarkably primary and youthful. There is plenty of the dark blue/purplish fruit that is so typical of the year, along with a host of savory/floral/spice notes that add complexity. Even with all of its intensity, the 2013 remains remarkably fresh, with underlying veins of salinity that give the wines its unmistakable sense of energy.
DOMINUS WINERY 2013 DOMINUS
"The 2013 Dominus overwhelms all the senses with its magnificent overall balance and towering intensity. Deep and nearly impenetrable in the glass, the 2013 boasts off the charts dry extract and overall power. Violets, smoke, black cherries, menthol, incense, crème de cassis and dark spices are some of the many signatures that take shape in the glass. Even better in bottle than it was in barrel, the 2013 is utterly magnificent. This is a remarkably vivid, nuanced wine considering its sheer size."
