This consignor, located in Oakville, began collecting wine in the late 1990s when his friend educated him on the pleasures of fine wine, the benefits of aging wine and the importance of proper storage. He bought 3 large climate-controlled wine cabinets and filled them with bottles purchased from the LCBO, other provincial retailers and from wineries directly. Over the past several years, he has been downsizing his collection bydonating to benefit auctions and now through Iron Gate
The wine in this lot has a score of 99 from Robert Parker and the following tasting note -Made in a more masculine style, the 28 Dominus has all of that along with bigger body and more structure, fat, density and texture. Both are brilliant wines and they represent the finest back-to-back vintages for Dominus since 21 and 22 or 199 and 1991. Both the 27 and 28 Dominus should drink well for 25-3 years.
