Christian Moueix fell in love with the Napa Valley and its wines while studying at U.C. Davis in 1968 and 1969. After many years of searching for the ideal vineyard location, in 1982 he entered into a joint venture with Robin Lail and Marcia Smith, John Daniel's two daughters. This was the birth of Dominus, and its first vintage was harvested in 1983. Since then, Christian Moueix has worked to restore the unique character of the original vineyard. Christian Moueix began his career in Pomerol, where merlot is the dominant varietal grown. At Dominus Estate, the essential grape varietal is cabernet sauvignon, the best suited for the Napanook vineyard terroir. Cabernet franc, merlot and petit verdot are also used in the final blend. The 2004 blend is: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot. All aged 16 months in French oak barrels, 40% new. Extremely Limited.

'Dominus' 2004 - Dominus Estate: 'Dominus' 2004 - Rotwein von Dominus EstateDer Dominus ist seit Jahren einer der Top-Weine Californiens und besteht jede Bordeaux-1er Cru Verkostung! Der eleganteWein zeigt sich einer grantroten, an dunkle Pflaumen erinnernden Farbe und stellt sich vor mit einem kräftigen, süßen und auch erdigen Duft, der an Zedernholz, kräftig geröstetem Mocca, Kirschlikör und Johannisbeeren erinnert. Sein mittelkräftiger Körper beeindruckt durch seidige Tannine und einem köstlichen Gefühl am Gaumen und beim Finale. Zu Wild, Steak, Rindfleisch oder Wildgeflügel ist er sehr zu empfehlen.Weingut: Dominus EstateLand: USARegion: KalifornienRebsorten: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit VerdotInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14 Vol.%Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (16 Monate)Auszeichnungen des Dominus Estate 'Dominus' 2004:94 Parker Punkte Rotwein > USA > Kalifornien

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine ReviewThis very generous and well-ripened offering starts out with an involving display of cherries, cassis, herbs, sweet oak and loam in its deep and decidedly complex aromas, and it follows with equally wide-ranging flavors that show a real sense of layering and plenty of depth. Ripe, but always in balance and firmed by a good dose of youthful tannins, this latest Dominus bottling is among the winery's very best efforts ever, and it is certain to get better yet over the next decade.Wine Advocate ReviewRated 94The elegant, dark plum/purple/garnet-colored 2004 Dominus exhibits a big, sweet, cedary, roasted herb, mocha, black cherry liqueur, black currant, and earth-scented perfume. Medium to full-bodied with silky tannin as well as a luscious mouthfeel and finish, it should be more accessible in its youth than many of its predecessors, but easily last for two decades. Drink 2006 - 2026.Wine Tasting NotesThe vintage is deep red in color, with an intense nose of vanilla, black currants and cedar. The elegant integration of the tannins and fruit is noticed immediately. Flavors of warm mulled spices on the mid-palate complement the balanced and complex structure. The long, aromatic finish exhibits notes of leather and cardamom.
