2009 Napanook, Dominus Estate, Napa

“The 2009 Napanook is simply glorious. Sweet dark cherries, mint, tobacco, wild flowers and licorice all jump from the glass. The 2009 is a juicy, extroverted Napanook that impresses for its sheer pleasure and total harmony. Layers of fruit continue to build to the huge, creamy finish. As good as the 2009 is today, I have a hard time thinking it won't be better in another few years. If anything, this is too serious a wine for an entry-level offering. The 2009 is 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. “ 93 points, Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate

2009 Napanook, Dominus Estate, Napa
Dominus Estate

Christian Moueix is one of Bordeaux’s most famous names, where he and his son Edouard run a prominent negociant business in Libourne and own several of the Right Bank’s top names, most notable Lafleur-Petrus. However, with a love for Napa Valley wines dating back to his time at university in California in the 1960s, he sought land there, and gained a stake in the historic Napanook vineyard before buying it outright in 1995. Christian soon renamed the 124 acres “Dominus”, after its Grand Vin, and has continued to build it as they introduced a second wine, Napanook, and third wine, Othello.
