Available for:
The Dominus 2006 epitomizes the best qualities of Cabernet Sauvignon in a great terroir of Napa Valley. This wine harmoniously integrates tremendous power, purity of fruit and lingering finesse. It clearly possesses an exceptional potential for aging. "Dominus 2006 is the very best definition of a great wine: it transcends time and place," Christian Moueix declares. The 2006 blend is comprised of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot. No Merlot was used in the blend this year. 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.

Unless you knew that this was Dominus and had tasted older vintages, you might not be impressed. In its youth the wine is tannic and dry and linear. However, it is Dominus and it does need cellaring. Right now it shows blackberry, black currant, cedar and baker's chocolate flavors. Will slowly open and reach maturity after 2011, and could easily develop for far longer.

A tight, reined-in style, with dry herb, cedar, dried currant, sage and mineral notes. Full-bodied, ending with a trim, tannic finish that suggests short-term cellaring. The best of two bottles tasted. Best from 2011 through 2015. 6,000 cases made.
