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.

(83% cabernet sauvignon, 9% petit verdot and 8% cabernet franc): Aromas of licorice, pepper, herbs, chicory and leather, plus a hint of lemon zest. In a distinctly herbal style, with cocoa and coffee bean notes complicating the flavors of cassis leaf and pepper. Shows a fairly fine-grained texture and good length but the finish betrays slightly dry tannins and a continuing leafy quality.
