Domini Plus 2007 / 750 ml.

Item#: 68194

WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2012
A rich and smooth wine, its tannins already deliciously integrated into the juicy black fruits. The wine has a tarry character along with its blackberry acidity, sweetness and an extra roundness from the wood. Worth aging for 3–4 years.

The 2007 DOMINI PLUS is a blend of Touriga Franca (60%), Tinta Roriz (30%) and Touriga Nacional (10%). Far too marked by sweet oak on opening, with most of its flavors and aromatics originating with oak, it is otherwise quite elegant, graceful in the mid-palate and rather bright. This has some chance of integrating some of its oak and showing better balance as time goes on as it certainly has the structure to allow it to hold a reasonable time in the cellar. It seems polished, with ripe tannins, but it has a real backbone. Tasted again the next day, it drank quite well — although it is worth noting that the sweet oak notes were still extremely prominent and a little troubling. Drink now–2020.

A plush red, with concentrated red berry and plum flavors that feature plenty of chocolate accents. The creamy finish is well-spiced. Drink now. 1,500 cases made.

Where It's From

Appellation / Douro

View more wines from Douro

Located in northwest Portugal, The Douro region follows the path of the Douro river. It's home to Portugal's most prized export, port wines, as well as a blossoming selection of world-class table wines. Typical red grapes used in Douro are Touriga Nacional (which produces tannic, dark red wines) and Tempranillo (under the name Tinta Roriz). The steep slopes of the Douro River Valley make it difficult to farm, but the resulting wines are worth all the effort.

Country / Portugal

View more wines from Portugal

Portugal is most famous (and justifiably so) for its Port wines, fortified wines that are typically sweet and often served with dessert. Port wines come in many styles such as Tawny, Late Bottled Vintage, etc, and are classified by how they were produced.

Besides Port, however, Portugal is also one of the fastest-rising wine countries in the world (as far as quality and production) when it comes to table wines. You'll find some unbelievable values in Portuguese table wines, with grapes like Touriga Nacional at the forefront.

This is a dense wine, with mint aromas and dark, brooding tannins. Black plum and berry fruits are both rich and tight, with a strong mineral texture. It brings out the hard soil of the Douro and also the heat in the valley. It does need to age, so drink from 2018.

Flavors of cherry pie and kirsch fill this ripe style, accented by lots of Asian spice notes. The finish lingers with plenty of floral and violet accents. Drink now. 644 cases made.

The 2011 Domini Plus is a blend of 65% Touriga Franca, 20% Tinta Roriz and 15% Touriga Nacional. It was aged in new French oak casks for 12 months. It also spent 2 months in used Port wine casks. This has moderate tannins, better focus, a bit more concentration and overall better structure than the rest of the producer’s red offerings this issue. Its mid-palate is well on the elegant side. It is by no means a big bruiser. It is, however, the only one of the group this issue that has a little upside. All that said, it’s also the one that seems well-drenched in oak, showing lots of vanilla that makes the fruit a bit hard to find. As this aired out, I retasted it several times and it did seem to improve, but it is a bit pricey for what it is. For best results, it could use cellaring for a year or two more to give it a chance to pull in some oak. It remains subtle, but it should have the ability to reward cellaring for a few years.
