Dominus Napa Valley Red 1994


SKU 67490


Dominus 1994 is the first vintage produced by the Dominus Estate Corporation (wholly owned by Christian Moueix), and is made solely from grapes grown on the historic Napanook Vineyard in Yountville, California. Comparable in quality to the 1991 vintage, the 1994 vintage is a classic Dominus wine. The final blend represents exactly the percentage of the varietals planted in the vineyard. It is without a doubt one of the great Dominus wines produced.

Wine AdvocateThe 1994 is a strikingly thick, compellingly rich wine with the texture of a great Pomerol, despite being made primarily from Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine exhibits a dense purple color, and an incredibly fragrant nose of jammy black fruits, spice, smoke, and loamy, truffle-like scents. In the mouth, it is full-bodied, with thrilling levels of extract and richness, but no sense of heaviness or harshness. This seamless Dominus possesses no hard edges, as its acidity, tannin, and alcohol are beautifully meshed with copious quantities of ripe fruit. This wine offers early drinking, yet has the potential to last for 30+ years.

Robert Parker, December 1997
