Dominus & Napanook
We are delighted to launch the 2018 vintage of the Moueix family’s outstanding wines from the Dominus Estate in Yountville, Napa Valley. 2018 was a very good vintage for Napa.
After a beautiful summer without any heat spikes, temperatures dropped to below average levels in late August and September, beneficially slowing the speed of ripening: harvest began with the Cabernet Franc on 1st October. A storm system interrupted picking on October 2nd, but hot and very dry weather returned on the 5th, with harvest continuing with the Cabernet Sauvignon on 9th October, followed by Petit Verdot. The grapes were beautifully ripe and aromatic, the resulting wines being deep, complex and well-articulated, with supple, elegant tannins.
