Way Back in the “Good Old Days”, while attending UC Davis in California, the Legendary Winemaker Christian Moueix fell in love with the Napa Valley and its wines in the late 1960s. An adored Son of a Famous Wine Producer, Jean-Pierre Moueix, the famed wine merchant and producer from Libourne, France. Christian returned home in 1970 to manage the family vineyards, including Chateaux PETRUS, La Fleur-Petrus, Trotanoy in Pomerol and Magdelaine in Saint Emilion.

Christian’s  love of Napa Valley and California’s Highest Rated Wines lingered and in 1981, he discovered the historic Napanook vineyard, a 124-acre site west of Yountville that had been the source of fruit for some of the finest Napa Valley wines of the 1940s and 1950s. In 1982, Moueix entered into a partnership to develop the vineyard and, in 1995, became its sole owner. Superstar Producer and beyond Legendary Winemaker Christian Moueix chose the name ‘DOMINUS’ which translates as ‘Lord of the Estate’ in Latin to accentuate his longstanding passion of Napa Valley, and the highly coveted fruit from one of Napa’s Top Vineyards of all time…

JD100 – 100 Points From Jeb Dunnuck, “The flagship 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon checks in as 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot brought up in 40% new French oak. With an essence of Cabernet-like character in its darker currants, green tobacco, cedar, graphite, and floral aromas and flavors, this gorgeous wine is full-bodied and has bright yet integrated acidity, polished tannins, and a great, great finish. It’s just gorgeously put together and a magical, flawless wine. It’s going to take a decade to hit maturity but will evolve for 40-50 years in cold cellars. It is as good as it gets in classic, age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon!” JEB DUNNUCK 100 POINTS

JS100 – 100 Points From James Suckling, “This is incredible on the nose, offering hot stones, blackcurrants, iodine and wet earth. Full-bodied with a tight center palate, then it opens with a tannin structure that is weightless and spreads across the palate. Totally integrated on the palate. This is a magic-carpet wine. Really incredible. One of the reference points for the vintage. Drinkable now and please try a bottle, but it’s one for the cellar.” JAMES SUCKLING 100 POINTS

WA99+ | 99+ Points From Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, “Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Dominus slowly emerges from the glass with profound notes of blackcurrant cordial, ripe black plums, boysenberries and Black Forest cake with hints of violets, star anise, cracked black pepper, raspberry leaves and pencil lead, plus a touch of garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers impactful black fruit layers, creating a beguiling sense of richness that is beautifully countered by invigorating freshness and great poise, framed by super ripe, plush tannins and beautiful tension, finishing on a lingering fragrant earth note and, finally, lots of mineral sparks. For all that it is at the moment, one cannot help but feel that this 2018 is holding something back. Give it a good five years in bottle, at least, and then get set for what I suspect will be a mind-blowing transformation over the next 30 years+.” WINE ADVOCATE 99+ POINTS
