External Reviews for Dominus Napa Valley Red
Christian Moueix, owner of one of Bordeaux most iconic properties, Chateau Petrus, came to Napa Valley with the desire to produce the best red wine in the valley. Dominus is the result and vintage after vintage it excels, reaping awards, accolades and rave reviews. The 2006, a blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot is one of the best ever. Robert Parker scored it 96 points and said " "...One of the finest wines of the vintage, it is complete, full-bodied, and seamlessly built with beautiful ripe tannins, low acidity, and a luscious, layered mouthfeel. The aromatics are even more evolved and complex than the 2005's. The 2006 should drink well for 20-25 years."

The Dominus 2006 epitomizes the best qualities of Cabernet Sauvignon in a great terroir of Napa Valley. This wine harmoniously integrates tremendous power, purity of fruit and lingering finesse. It clearly possesses an exceptional potential for aging. "Dominus 2006 is the very best definition of a great wine: it transcends time and place," Christian Moueix declares. The 2006 blend is comprised of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot. No Merlot was used in the blend this year. We recommend decanting the wine prior to serving, to allow it to develop its full potential. This is especially important when serving young Dominus wines.
