98Vinous / IWC

...magnificent. Deep and expressive on the palate...possesses tremendous intensity but delivered in an understated voice. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, new leather and spice...truly impressive. All the elements are simply in the right place.

97+ The Wine Advocate

...notes of crushed black cherries, cassis and blackberry pie with hints of cigar boxes, menthol, cardamom and dark chocolate with a waft of lilacs...palate is full-bodied, very firm and lively with a great core of tightly wound, muscular fruit and loads of mineral accents, finishing very long and perfumed.

97Jeb Dunnuck

...concentration, layered, and full-bodied profile to go with complex blue fruits (cassis and blueberries), tobacco leaf, violets, and spring flower-like aromas and flavors. It’s incredibly pure and elegant, has ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish...


United States, California, Napa Valley, Yountville

Yountville AVA is just west of Stags Leap and north of Oak Knoll. It is centered around the town of Yountville, named for George Yountville, who planted the area’s first vineyard in 1836. The district received appellation status in 1999 and it includes 4,000 vineyard acres. It is known for tannic Cabernet Sauvignon that has a reputation for aging well. Dominus Estate, formerly Napanook Vineyard, is one of the most prestigious producers in Yountville, and in all of Napa Valley.
