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.

(93% cabernet sauvignon, 6% petit verdot and 1% cabernet franc): Good bright red-ruby. Musky aromas of black raspberry, redcurrant, tobacco, menthol and herbs. Offers a light touch to its dark fruit and herbal flavors but comes across as tight today, and not yet showing much pliancy or sweetness. In a cool, minty style but this clenched wine is still a baby. (I tasted this bottle just before press time in New York; my earlier sample at Dominus was lower-toned and did not display as much lift.)
