One of the true pioneers of Napa Valley, the property of Dominus Estate can trace its roots back to at least the 1850’s when it was known as Napanook. Now owned by famed Bordeaux oenologist and negociant Christian Mouiex (of Petrus fame), the Bordeaux style blends of Dominus are a picture of refinement and elegance. Located in Yountville and eschewing the trendy heavy use of new oak in its blends, Dominus stands unique in a room full of ripe, over the top, “cult” wines with its subtly, restraint, and terroir driven style. The estate is planted to 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cab Franc, 5% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot. For Bordeaux lovers who desire to experience “Old School Napa”, the wines of Dominus are sure to please. Both critics and collectors agree, placing Dominus Estate in the upper echelon of collectible, age worthy Napa gems.
