About Dominus Estate
Christian Mouiex's orgins are in Bordeaux. During his time at UC Davis, however, Mouiex fell in love with the Napa Valley. It was to be a lasting love, which flowered into Dominus, his California outpost.

($39; 88% cabernet sauvignon, 7% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot) Moderately saturated ruby-red color. Cool aromas of dark berries, tobacco leaf, licorice, minerals and fresh herbs. Then spicy but a bit green-edged in the mouth, with flavors of currant and raspberry. Finishes with rather soft tannins and strong spice character. This sample had been in a decanter for six hours. A just-opened bottle was similarly cool on the nose, then tighter but fruitier in the mouth, offering bitter cherry and herbal flavors.
