The wines of Dominus Estate are crafted by renowned winemaker Christian Moueix of Château Petrus and Château Trotanoy in Pomerol. After studying enology at UC Davis in the late 1960s, Moueix returned to California in the early eighties and acquired a stake in the historic Napanook vineyard in Yountville. Originally planted in 1836, Napanook is home to some of the oldest Cabernet vines in Napa Valley, and to this day it serves as the basis for Dominus.

97+ Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "There was about 50% of a normal crop this year for the 2017 Dominus, due to strict selection. Grapes were harvested from September 21 to October 3 and the wine was bottled in June 2019. This year the blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, aged in 40% new French oak barrels. Very deep purple-black in color, it sashays nonchalantly out of the glass with graceful notions of potpourri, forest floor, crushed rocks, Ceylon tea and licorice with a core of black currant cordial, chocolate-covered cherries, mulberries and preserved plums plus a waft of garrigue. Full-bodied, the palate has a beautifully impactful, wonderfully quiet intensity of black and blue fruits with loads of floral and spicy sparks, framed by firm yet plush tannins, finishing with long-lasting earthy notes. 2,800 cases were made.
