RATINGS

97Robert M. Parker Jr.

A candidate for “wine of the vintage,” ...Bordeaux-like structure, good purity, and incredibly sweet fruit.

93+ Stephen Tanzer

Deep, brooding aromas of dark fruits, licorice, violet, bitter chocolate and minerals...showing a rather muscular, claret-like minerality today but also a stronger fruit component.

90Wine Spectator

Complex, if on a restrained scale, with nutmeg, dried currant and berry flavors, joined by mineral and sage. Tight, focused, balanced and very Bordeaux-like in its restraint and refinement.

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.
