Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Dominus Estate, Dominus, Napa Valley, 2014

Initially this is a little reticent, with air the nose soon emerges, revealing cool dark notes of notes of camphor, dark berry compote, and sweet tobacco. On the palate, so lithe and silken, with a lovely graphite mineral character, a touch of mint leaf, blond pipe tobacco and gently spiced cassis flavours all wrapped up in a fluide weave of fine tannins and fresh uplifting acidity. Towards the finish complex noble wood notes, the gentlest suggestion of forest floor, and cacao with dark cherry. A beautifully made Dominus.

Dominus Estate

Dominus Estate

This is a Christian Moueix venture in California that was quick to achieve cult status. Its fame is such that demand far outweighs supply of the limited production Dominus wine. Its stablemate, Napanook, is made from the same vineyard and is a similar Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc/Petit Verdot blend that has marginally softer tannins and, although is designed for earlier drinking, will still cellar well for five to ten years.
