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.
94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2010
($129; features an unusually high 94% cabernet sauvignon) Good deep red-ruby. Ripe, rich aromas of black raspberry, coffee, menthol, licorice and smoked meat. Much more velvety and seamless than the Napanook, with more thoroughly integrated acidity and enticing inner-mouth floral lift. Not a particularly opulent style but very suave and complex, finishing with noteworthy rising length and very sweet, fine-grained tannins. This beauty has the balance for a long and graceful life in bottle.
