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.

($42) Deep red-ruby. Raspberry, mocha, tobacco, brown spices, menthol and herbs on the lively and inviting nose. Supple on entry, then a tad disjointed in the middle, with flavors of red fruits, smoke, flowers and earth along with some slightly edgy acidity. Finishes with dusty tannins and a light peppery element. This calls for two or three years of patience.
