Dominus Estate Dominus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2017

$69.99

Dominus' second label, the Napanook is a great opportunity to try the Dominus magic at a fraction of the price.  Drink this beauty while the Dominus is aging in the cellar. 95 Points James Suckling:  "This is so drinkable now. Savory and yummy. Lots of blackberries, blueberries and currants. Full-to medium-bodied, tight and silky with beautiful freshness and finesse. So long and caressing, yet tightly grained tannins give it tension. Lovely drinkability." 94 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Napanook offers classy notes of cassis, black currants, toasted spices, and hints of flowers. With lots of chocolatey richness, medium to full body, and beautifully ripe tannins, it's layered and has impressive depth of fruit, followed by a great finish. It's going to evolve for 15-20 years. It's an incredible value in classic, impeccably made Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon." 93 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2017 Napanook is forward, lush and quite giving - in other words, very much in keeping with the style of the year. Silky and radiant, with plenty of bright, red-toned fruit, the 2017 Napanook is one of the very finest Napa Valley Cabernets readers will find in this price range. This is such a gorgeous and inviting wine. When just opened, the 2017 mostly offers density and opulence, but a few hours of air brings out layers of subtlety and aromatic nuance."

Sipping Fine Wine Delectable Pro

A blend of 88% Cab Sauv, 7% Cab Franc & 5% Petit Verdot, aged in 40% new French oak, limiting oak extraction, dark Ruby, purple hues, with aromas of dark currant-like berries, tobacco and cedar. On the palate ripe blackberry, black cherry and cassis with vanilla, cacao and espresso. Well balanced, fine soft integrated tannins, long finish ending with floral, fruit, mineral and earthy character. Needs a few more in the bottle but will last beyond the decade.
