Domus Aurea 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon (Maipo Valley)

Five years ago we said Domus Aurea could become one of Chile's very best Cabernets. But then focus, winemakers and other things changed and the quality slipped. But Domus seems to be back with a vengeance in 2003. A nosing yields a lot of earth, tobacco and leather, while the sly but sure flavor profile is centered on baked plum and cassis along with some herbal, terroir-ish shadings. Still not for everyone, but very, very interesting and not generic. Michael Schachner
