Number 11 on Wine Spectators Top 100 Wines of 2002! The last vintage of the century will be remembered for its exceptional quality. This vintage was characterized by its extremely long growing season - a season where patience eventually paid dividends in the form of wine with outstanding character and complexity.
The 1999 vintage is beautifully harmonious with an inviting color and a very full body. This wine starts with a delicate entry of black cherry aromas, evolving toward impressively structured tannins. The long, fragrant finish reveals spicy notes and a hint of cedar.
The 1999 blend includes 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 9% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot.
This wine is built to age. Christian Moueix recommends decanting this wine prior to serving, to allow it to develop its full potential. This is especially important when serving young wines.

A Customer - Sonoma
Exceptional wine. After living in Sonoma County for 10 years, I have tried numerous wines. This 1999 Dominus Estate is one of my favorites. I have bought several bottles for aging. Be sure to decant before serving for the full experience. Creamy and complex with a smooth finish. Fond memories, good wine... Worth every penny!
