This is a post that I will willingly admit is totally for my own benefit, it must be my brain but I find I have to search this blog more and more to check my notes. I am therefore trying to put more and more of them down on here.
Yesterday these two beauties appeared on the tasting bench ahead of their release. I have been lucky enough to have my fair share of Dominus over the years…a graceful wine that combines an, almost always, rather wonderful climate with a simple, honest approach to wine-making. Though it is often said that this is like a Bordeaux from Californian…the opposite is true…this is what California should be like…but that is my, obviously biased, opinion. Give me Dominus & Ridge any day…
Both will be approachable early but thave the balance and grace to age very well.
