Dominus Estate Napa Valley
Dominus is the proprietary red wine produced by Christian Moueix, from grapes grown on a single vineyard in the heart of the Napa Valley. The wines reflect both the California terroir and the spirit of a great Bordeaux chateau, with its attention to detail and devotion to quality in every aspect of winemaking.
A surprisingly sweet nose of floral blue fruit leads to a soft and supple palate that continues with the same elements. Plenty of ripe blackberry fruit has some very subtle forest floor/truffle notes underneath. Medium body, long finish, peppery, smooth and good balance. Drinks well on
Something like this is perfect for holiday rib roasts, leg of lamb roasts, or any other rich, bold red meats you might throw its way. For the perfect accent, though, consider browning your root vegetables in beef fat for a side dish that compliments the wine as well as the main course.
