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.

89(+?)? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2009

($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.

Excellent Value Cab Blend

This was a surprise purchase. I had a friend who had mentioned Dominus before, and purchased essentially on name alone. This is the lower level of their wines, but I think a great value. Incredibly drinkable. Would purchase again, although price would affect purchase.

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay. From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
