Dominus--Vintage 1991
5 bottles per lot
DOMINUS What happens when you combine French winemaker Christian Moueix of Pétrus fame with Napanook, one of Napa Valley's most famous vineyards? You get Dominus, a wine that shares a terroir with the legendary wines of the Inglenook Vineyards era. Dominus is a "Bordeaux blend," made up of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon with a dash of Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. In France, a Cabernet Sauvignon-heavy blend like this would be found on the left bank, whereas Moueix is famous for his right bank wines: Pétrus, Trotanoy and Magdelaine. In typical Moueix style, Dominus is made in a very "French fashion:" serious attention to the vineyard health, three weeks of fermentation, 18 months in barrel, egg-white fining and no filtration. The first vintage for Dominus was in 1983. Dominus--Vintage 1991 Napa Valley 5 bottles per lot
