Product Description

The 1986 vintage marks the first wine produced in the “second series” of Dominus Estate. Cabernet Franc was added to the final blend for the first time, introducing a floral character and a complexity that was not found in the previous wines.

80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and 8% Merlot.

Robert Parker: 93 Points:
 "I did not pick this out as Dominus in the blind tasting, largely because it came across as such a young, rich, blockbuster wine. One of the richest, densest, most concentrated offerings in the entire tasting, it also proved to be one of the best-balanced, with better integration of acidity and tannin than many 1986s exhibited. The color remains a deep, dark ruby, with purple hues. Dense, concentrated, and pure, with copious quantities of cassis fruit intermingled with earth, spice, and minerals, this large-scaled, concentrated wine appears to have aged at a glacial pace since I first tasted it. Accessible because of its well-integrated, low acidity, this wine should continue to evolve and drink well for another 15-20 years."
