About the Wine

The 2019 Dominus Napanook is born from the hands of one of the world's best winemakers, Christain Moueix. Coupled with the talents of the french-born Moueix are the exquisitely grown grapes from the near-perfect 2018 vintage. Needless to say, there aren't many wines like the 2019 Napanook that have this elite pedigree of champion winemaker, near-perfect vintage, and critical praise. You'll be hard-pressed to find a better drinking experience than the 2019 Napanook. Get yours while you still can.

Christian Moueix is one of the few producers to make classic wines in both the old and new worlds, Christian Moueix is President of Etablissements Jean-Pierre Moueix, the leading wine company of Bordeaux’s Right Bank, and owner of Dominus Estate in the Napa Valley.

Son of Jean-Pierre Moueix, the legendary Bordeaux wine merchant, Christian was born in Libourne, France in 1946. After completing his agricultural engineering studies in Paris and graduate studies in viticulture and enology at the University of California at Davis in 1968-69, he joined Ets Jean-Pierre Moueix in 1970 and, in 1991, became its President.

A viticulturalist at heart, Christian Moueix’s tenure has been marked by the introduction of revolutionary vineyard techniques including, from 1973, crop-thinning as a means to improve grape quality. Today he produces wine from ten family chateaux including La Fleur Petrus, Trotanoy, Hosanna, Providence in Pomerol and, Belair-Monange and Magdelaine in Saint Emilion.

In 1982, Christian Moueix formed a partnership to produce Dominus from the historic Napanook Vineyard in Yountville. Adapting his French technical approach to Californian winemaking.

Tasting Note: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Petit Verdot. Offers a bouquet of lavender, cedar, ripe plum, and savory earthiness supported by a structure of bright and lively tannins. 

Reviews

An open and beautiful wine with green-olive and currant aromas and flavors. Some bark and earth, too, together with mushrooms, herbs, crushed stones, and pomegranate. Medium to full body with round, creamy tannins and refined finish. Blood orange at the end. Crunchy. So drinkable now, but will age beautifully. ~96 James Suckling
