Color - Deep red Bouquet - Intense aromas of violets, cassis, spice and blackberries. Taste - Full-bodied and concentrated, with rich, black fruit flavors, smooth tannins and a long, persistent finish
Wine Spectator 87 points - A ripe, muscular red, with accents of roast beef to the dark plum, baked cherry and dark chocolate flavors. The minerally finish features plenty of tannins. Drink now. 1,500 cases made.-KM  (Jun 15 2012)

Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2008 Domini plus is a blend of Touriga Franca (65%), Tinta Roriz (20%) and Touriga Nacional (15 %) aged in new French oak for 14 months. Arguably the best Domini Plus I’ve seen, this shows finesse and impeccable balance, ripe tannins, focus and some power. It adds a layer or two of depth over the regular Domini reviewed this issue, and unlike the regular bottling it should age well and develop more character and a little complexity. Rather modern styled, its impeccable balance makes it very attractive and likely easy to drink at all stages of its life. There were 19,037 bottles produced. Drink now-2022. (Jun 2011)
