The 2016 Dominus is both classic Napa and ultra-modern - a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, and 8% Cabernet Franc. Filled with notes of deep forest berries, juniper, and truffle, it is restrained and compact. 100 points, Wine Advocate.

Christian Moueix studied at UC Davis in the '60s, fell in love with Napa Valley and returned to France in 1970 to manage the family properties of - among others - the famed Chateau Petrus before returning to Napa again to purchase Napanook vineyard (originally a source for Inglenook’s blend in 1943). Dry farmed with a state-of-the-art building designed by the now-famous Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron, the 2016 is both classic Napa and ultra-modern - a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, and 8% Cabernet Franc. Filled with notes of deep forest berries, juniper and truffle, it is restrained and compact. The tightly woven structure promises to reveal fine tannins, earth, lavender, and dark chocolate and will improve over many years. It received a perfect 100 points from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate!
