This isn't the Dominus, but a sort of junior to it. Rich and thick, with ripe blackberry and mocha flavors generously accented with oak. Lush and smooth, it's really a complete Napa Cabernet. Even at this price, when you compare it to so many other expensive, ho-hum Cabs, it's a value.

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
