In 1981, Christian Moueix discovered the historic Napanook Vineyard, a 124-Acre Site west Of Yountville that had been the source of fruit for some of the finest Napa Valley wines of the 1940s and 1950s. In 1982, Moueix entered into a partnership to develop the vineyard and, in 1995, became its sole owner. He chose the name ‘Dominus’ or ’Lord of the Estate’ in Latin to underscore his commitment to Stewardship of this iconic American land. Committed to making balanced wines of exceptional quality which will express the terroir of Napanook. At Dominus Estate, the Moueix team combines centuries-old traditions of grapegrowing in Bordeaux with innovative modern winemaking.   Napanook is the high quality second label of Dominus.

Very deep purple-black in color, the 2016 Napanook Proprietary Red Wine is composed of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and 7% Cabernet Franc aged in 20% new oak. A beautiful perfume of violets, aniseed, truffles and lavender is just starting to emerge over a core of warm cassis, blackberry preserves and ripe plum plus hints of cedar chest, chocolate box, rare beef and cardamom. The palate is medium to full-bodied and firmly textured with very ripe tannins, gradually revealing layers of black and blue fruits plus loads of earthy sparks, finishing with amazing freshness and depth. 3,500 cases produced.
