2015 Othello, Dominus Estate, Napa Valley

The 2015 Othello is a brilliant example of this wine for those in the know: the best made yet, surely. Dark cassis and plum on the nose with hints of tapenade and spice are encompassed in ripe, voluptuous tannins, with a fine thread of acidity running through the wine. A brilliant introduction to the Californian wines of Christian Moueix, and a wine that will prove harder and harder to secure.

2015 Othello, Dominus Estate, Napa Valley
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.
