This wine reminded me of a mid-90's La Mission Haut Brion, with slightly riper fruit. Fantastic stuff, and I'd like to compare this to the '94 someday soon.

Glad to hear how well the bottle drank, Bro.

The '92 is such a unique Dominus, ( best ever I think) and very different than other Dominus vintages.

The '92 is a Right Bank like vintage while other vintages are more Left Bank like. With just over 50% ( very rare for Dominus) Cabernet Sauvignon and only 25% new barrels for this vintage, it is very different than say the '91 or '94 wines.

Place the '92 in a Right Bank blind tasting and it blends well, place it in a Left Bank blind tasting and it sorely sticks out.

I look forward to seeing you soon! Cool
