Heiner Lobenberg über:
Dominus Napanook 2012

94
/100

Lobenberg: Obwohl es ein fast waschechter Cabernet ist erinnert der Wein sofort an einen sehr feinen, sanften, rotfruchtigen Pomerol. Tolle Kirsche und Waldbeeren, ultrafein und seidig, ein Spaßmacher mit superber Balance und Harmonie. 94/100

Suckling über: Dominus Napanook

-- Suckling: This is shows wonderful aromas of tar, asphalt, wet earth and pure cherries. Full-bodied yet soft and velvety with a fine, dusty texture to the finish. Fresh and austere. Dignified. This has no cabernet franc in it this year; normally there is 3% to 5%. It’s 95% cabernet sauvignon and 5% petit verdot. Drink or hold. 95/100

Parker über: Dominus Napanook

-- Parker: The 2012 Napanook (a 3,000-case blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot) is one of the strongest second wines Moueix has produced to date. Made in a sexy, open-knit, opulent style very much in keeping with the vintage’s signature, it offers up luscious notes of bay leaf, lavender, red and blackcurrants, plum sauce, licorice and Christmas fruitcake. This is a gorgeous, opulent, medium to full-bodied 2012 that is already revealing considerable complexity. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. 93/100

Galloni über: Dominus Napanook

-- Galloni: In addition to being flat-out delicious, the 2012 Napanook is also one of the very best values in top Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark, sumptuous and exceptionally polished, the 2012 captures all of the best qualities of the year. Raspberry jam, spices, wild flowers and cinnamon wrap around the silky finish in a Cabernet Sauvignon that over delivers big time. The flavors are bright and focused, but the texture is classic 2012. What a gorgeous wine this is. 92/100

Winespectator über: Dominus Napanook

-- Winespectator: -- WS: Deftly balanced, with an enticing mix of gravelly, loamy earth, dried berry, cedar and cigar box, all rich and extracted. Ends with raw, assertive tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2018 through 2030. 94/100

Dominus Moueix

Christian Moueix, charismatischer, legendärer und genialer Mitbesitzer von Chateau Petrus in Pomerol, wurde durch das Joint Venture von Mouton Rothschild und Mondavi (Opus One) inspiriert. Sein Dominus ist seit Jahren einer der Top-Weine Californiens, meistens sogar besser als der Opus One.
