Winemaker's Notes

The palate is opulent and full-bodied with spicy black fruits, saturated tannins and a texture so smooth you could slide down it. The production of Le Dome is not large at around 1,000 cases. What little exists, however is made with no expense spared in the pursuit of excellence.

Critical Acclaim

"An opaque purple color is followed by notes of graphite, mulberries, blueberries and flowers. The 2008 is broad, savory and medium to full-bodied with sweet tannins, decent acidity, a textured, complex mouthfeel and no hard edges. It, too, should drink nicely for 10-15 years."
94 Points

"Smooth, perfumed and elegant, this Cabernet Franc-dominated wine has rounded tannins, layered acidity and a dark power of ripe tannins. It is both concentrated and fresh, a great combination."
94 Points

"Full medium ruby. Lovely cabernet franc perfume to the aromas of dark raspberry, graphite, flowers and licorice. Chewy, layered and sweet but tightly wound, with strong minerality and vibrant florality enlivening the middle palate. This really spreads out to dust the palate with flavor. Ultimately quite minerally and classically dry in spite of its full ripeness, and very long on the aftertaste. Leaves the taste buds vibrating. This singular wine is normally about 80% cabernet franc."
