Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 96
There were 6,500 cases produced of the 1987 Dominus. It is one of the great wines of the vintage in a year when a handful of California producers made profound Cabernets (i.e., Robert Mondavi Reserve, Dunn Howell Mountain, and Chateau Montelena). The wine is beginning to shut down, but it still displays a rich ruby color and an intensely spicy, fragrant nose of toasty vanillin oak, cassis, and cedar. In the mouth, this medium to full-bodied wine displays considerable tannins, fine integrated acidity, and an opulent, rich, spicy finish. I would suggest cellaring it for another 3-4 years; it should easily keep through the first decade of the next century.-Robert Parker

Earthy currant, cherry, anise and mineral flavors work well with the supple texture and fine length. Tannins are softening. Tempting now for its detailed flavors.--1987 California Cabernet horizontal. Best from 1998 through 2003. 6,500 cases made.-JL
