The aromas on the nose are of damson & mulberry fruit, mocha and a swathe of vanilla in a restrained style. The 2011 was a difficult year and yet Dominus have pulled out all the stops and produced an excellent offering. The palate is medium bodied, with savoury earthy notes, black peppercorn, graphite with a spicy lingering finish. Somewhat Bordeaux–esque in style and I think with 5 – 7 years in the bottle this wine will be a lovely drop and will continue to evolve into the 2020’s. A wine that in time will show very much like an aged claret.Stuart Rae, BBR.com
Notes from Dominus - The 2011 vintage displays fresh almond, wild strawberry and cassis. The wine has delicate notes of smooth caramel. Polished tannins, dark berries, cocoa and sage accompany a long elegant finish.
The 2011 vintage is composed of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. We recommend decanting the wine prior to serving, to allow it to develop its full potential. This is especially important when serving young Dominus wines.
