Dominus Estate is owned by Christian Moueix from Libourne, France. His goal, supported by the team at the winery, is to produce great wine representing the unique terroir of the Napanook vineyard. Our philosophy is very traditional—that is, in order to produce great wine we need the best possible grapes. Therefore, we concentrate our efforts in the vineyard. The vines are meticulously manicured—we believe in crop-thinning, "nettoyage," washing the grapes, and other labor-intensive activities. During each visit to California, Christian Moueix spends most of his time in the vineyard, not only because he loves it, but also to better understand the natural expression of the vintage. Following the maturation of the clusters allows us to harvest the grapes under the best conditions. When the fruit enters the cellar after harvest, it follows a natural process of fermentation with few interventions. Our approach is that of a minimalist's. Following fermentation, the wine is blended in a manner that expresses the natural qualities of the fruit, not forced into a style with preconceived notions. Read less

Dominus Estate wines are made solely from grapes grown on the historic Napanook vineyard. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot shows ripe fruit, balanced acidity, and lively tannins on the finish. Decant and enjoy today, or hold this bottle for 10 -15 years.

2003 will be remembered as a vintage with a very long growing season, one that continued into November for some blocks. The beautiful fall weather permitted prolonged hang time, allowing the fruit develop its complexity.The 2003 blend is 88% Cabernet

Dominus is a large vineyard, and they have the ability to make a strict selection.
