Estate Wine Brokers is thrilled to offer the latest release from a producer that requires no introduction to many of our readers, Dominus Estate. For the uninitiated, Dominus is owned by renowned winemaker Christian Moueix of Chateau Petrus 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. The 2016 vintage was awarded a 'perfect' 100 point score by Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, and we are thrilled to offer this collectible wine at the lowest retail price in the country:
Dominus Estate Napa Valley 2016 750ml - $279
100 Points Wine Advocate "A blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot and 8% Cabernet Franc aged in 40% new oak, the 2016 Proprietary Red Wine is deep purple-black in color and quite reticent at this youthful stage to begin, offering up subtle notions of potpourri, Indian spices, cigar box and iron ore over a core of crushed blackberries and black cherries with intermittent wafts of black and red currants, new leather and smoked meats. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a densely packed mid-palate and oodles of freshness framed by very ripe, finely grained tannins and laced with compelling earthy accents. It offers incredible vibrancy with tons of black and red fruit sparkle in the mid-palate leading to a provocative mineral element on the very long finish. If I could give more than 100 for this one, I would. (LPB)" (10/2018)
