By Dominus

2007 Dominus Estate from Dominus, Napa Valley, USA

Considered one of the most distinguished vintages from the sun-drenched vineyards of the acclaimed Napa Valley, the 2007 Dominus Estate from Dominus heralds a constellation of on-point wine investment potentials blended with an appealingly complex proficiency.


Breathtaking maturation, a touchstone for investors

The critical acclaim that trails behind this venerated bottle can be squarely traced to Dominus' mastery over their aromatic palette. Met with an open vintage like 2007, this expertise was propelled onto an even loftier plateau. For those with a discerning palate and keen on investing in fine wines from USA, this harvest is viewed as a touchstone of Californian winemaking.

As soon as the cork is released on this 14-year-old beauty, you are greeted by a fragrant bouquet blooming with infused cedar, plush blackcurrants, subtle tobacco undertones, and intoxicating allspice; a harbinger of the vinous seduction that awaits.


2007 – an excellent climatic year

The 2007 rainfall pattern in Napa Valley endowed its vintners with bone-dry summer months - absolute bliss for driving ripeness in the red grape clusters. A fiery September provided a final thrust to the ripening phase, resulting in optimum fruit concentration gracing the harvested grapes - a facet gloriously displayed in every swirl and sip of 2007 Dominus Estate.

This wine offers layered complexity with luxurious textures on the mid-palate. Decant to unlock its generous flavours evolving into a symphony of well-embodied tannins accompanied by notes of mocha and vanilla.

Finishing gracefully with enduring persistence, the 2007 Dominus Estate proves to be a testament of how fine wine investment can lead one to savor ingenious flavor profiles and appreciate opulent vintages such as this. An exquisite portrayal of the great 2007 vintage, embodied in every drop of this meticulously crafted Cabernet blend from Dominus, reinforcing them as one of the finest producers in the region, or indeed across the globe.

Scores and tasting notes


Deep garnet in color with a touch of purple, the 2007 Proprietary Red Wine flaunts wonderfully expressive, vibrant blackberries and black cherries scents to begin, giving way to black raspberries and redcurrants with touches of Indian spices, potpourri, chargrill, sage, espresso, unsmoked cigars and tilled soil plus a waft of cloves. Medium to full-bodied, the elegantly styled palate offers tantalizing restraint with a firm frame of very fine, pixelated tannins and compelling freshness, finishing very long with an invigorating lift. Although this wine will handsomely reward a further 5-7 years in cellar, it can offer a lot of pleasure now but will need a couple of hours of decanting.
