RATINGS

95Robert M. Parker Jr.

...a Margaux-like effort... ...huge fragrance of spring flowers, black currants, plums, and a hint of spice. Elegant, full-bodied flavors are intense and substantial, but neither heavy nor overweight... ...beautiful, pure, well-balanced...

94Stephen Tanzer

Currant, mocha and licorice on the nose, with strong rocky, smoky soil tones adding appeal. Dense and sweet but with lovely harmonious acidity lifting the black raspberry and mineral flavors. Chewy, layered wine with terrific persistence.

90Wine Spectator

Offers a pure, appealing beam of red currant-, red licorice- and cranberry-laced fruit. Medium- to full-bodied, focused and persistent, young and tight, ending with ripe, finely grained tannins.

REGION

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.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
