99Robert M. Parker Jr.

Made in a more masculine style, the 2008 Dominus has all of that along with bigger body and more structure, fat, density and texture. Both are brilliant wines and they represent the finest back-to-back vintages for Dominus...

95James Suckling

Very perfumed and beautiful, with currants, flowers, and notes of mint. Full-bodied, with round velvety tannins that lead up to a chocolate and ripe berry finish...showing great fruit, and a great finish.

94Wine Spectator

Very Bordeaux-like in its makeup and structure, this firm wine has good acidity and tight tannins, offering complex loamy earth, vivid dried currant and berry, with anise and mineral sprinkled in. This is my favorite young Dominus of late.

92Wine Enthusiast

...dry, well-structured...blackberries, cassis, blueberries and cedar, wrapped into plush tannins.

91+ Stephen Tanzer

...nose hints at blackberry, cassis, plum, mocha, tobacco, licorice and menthol...offering noteworthy breadth and mineral lift...with licorice and herb notes leavening the wine's riper plum and mocha flavors.


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.
