Dominus 2010 Napa Valley

Haunting; is it really a bad thing when it comes to wine? For every rare or special bottle that has recently scrolled along my Facebook feed as friends are charmed by this or that wine, one image flashes across my mind: Dominus 2010. Ever since tasting this deeply complex, dark-fruited wine at Premiere Napa Valley last week, this is the wine I cannot get out of my head.

Its developing aromas and flavors add beautiful hints of dried herb, leather and a touch of savory to the core of blackberry and black currant fruit. Now every time I want to enjoy a great glass, I think of this wine. For the 2010 Dominus, I’m perfectly OK being haunted.
