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.
87-89 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2013
(83% cabernet sauvignon, 9% petit verdot and 8% cabernet franc): Moderately saturated red-ruby. Rather cool, resiny aromas of coffee, mint, clove oil and herbs. Smooth and fine-grained, but with limited sweetness and a distinct greenness to the redcurrant, wintergreen, menthol, cassis leaf and resiny herb flavors. As it opened in the glass, I picked up notes of peach pit and black olive. This rather soft, slightly dry wine will drink early.
