Clean and pure on the nose with a nice edge of vegetal funk up front and background notes of smoke and oak all over a very cassis driven core. This is decidedly varietal on the nose but note very California. In the mouth this is pretty soft with some fairly dry tannins still making their presence known. The fruit is soft and subtle with some dark, dried fruit notes that lead to a cinnamonny finish. Overall this promised more than it delivered and was rather dry and graceless. I have had better bottles of this, but they were all in the past. My last experience with this unfortunately mirrored this one. 84pts

Just gone past its best. Muted Christmas pudding nose with some dusty fruit. Decanting opened up. A bit of cherry/plum fruit plus coconut and cinnamon on palate. Still some tannin but not enough fruit to support. I actually still quite like it and the finish is long.

Napanook is a blend of bordeaux varietals specifically selected from the estate vineyard for their lively fruit and bold character. Napanook wines are youthful and exuberant, meant to be enjoyed regularly when a more casual wine is called for.

Dominus Estate is a check-list item for collectors. Highly lauded by wine critics and wine enthusiasts alike, this proprietary blend of Cabernet and Cabernet Franc is complex, dense, and incredibly age-worthy.

The 2009 Dominus flows from the glass with layers of highly expressive fruit. The wine possesses stunning richness, power and depth. Dark red fruit, tobacco, flowers and spices are woven into a seamless, beautifully articulated finish. Elegance and intensity are in perfect harmony here. This is a thrilling wine from Dominus. The blend is 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. - Robert Parker 97+ Points (blended with 10% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot): Good ruby-red color, more saturated than the Napanook. Knockout floral lift to the aromas of black raspberry, blueberry, blond tobacco, almond and mint. Suave, savory and extremely precise, with penetrating flavors of dark berries, licorice, minerals and cocoa powder. The petit verdot component acts as an amplifier of aromas and flavors, notes winemaker Tod Mostero, "like a good seasoning." Medicinal in a Bordeaux way. The finishes sho...

WA 99pts. - JS 95pts. - This perennial favorite received a near-perfect score from Robert Parker and is sure to disappear in a jiffy! Winemaker Notes - The source for the wines is the historic Napanook Vineyard, one of the oldest vineyards in the Napa Valley that has been in production since the late 19th century. Located at the heart of the Napa Valley, the vineyard benefits from warm days but is kept cool by the breezes that pass over the Mayacamas Mountains.

This perennial favorite received a near-perfect score from Robert Parker and is sure to disappear in a jiffy! Made in a more masculine style, the 2008 Dominus has all of that along with bigger body and more structure, fat, density and texture.
