94 Points - last call                                           
The new vintage of Dominus Estate 2011 Proprietary Red now available - limited. *please note this is a 375ml half-bottle*

94 Points Antonio Galloni: "Savory herbs, menthol, smoke and licorice are some of the aromas that open up in the glass in the 2011 Dominus.  This is a relatively immediate, expressive Dominus with plenty of near-term appeal.  The style is open and succulent for the year, with lovely balance and poise.  Crushed rose petals and dried herbs linger in the close. With time in the glass, the 2011 fleshes out nicely.  In 2011 Dominus is 86% Cabernet Sauvignonj, 9% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc.." 

Since its inaugural vintage in 1983, the wines of Dominus Estate have been crafted in a traditional and terroir-driven style by the luminous Christian Moueix of Chateau Petrus fame. Unable to pass up the change to make what he called the “Haut-Brion of Napa”, Moueix came to own the legendary Napanook Vineyard. Moueix eschews irrigation, acidification, and the heavy usage of oak common amongst his Napa colleagues. The exceptional terroir of Napanook in combination with his skillful viticulture and traditional winemaking techniques have repeatedly resulted in some of the most broadly enjoyable Napa Cabs available and clearly place Dominus in the upper echelon of this genre.
