Heiner Lobenberg über:
Dominus Napanook 2017

95+
/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. 95+/100

Suckling über: Dominus Napanook

-- 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. Available April 2020. Drink or hold. 95/100

Jeb Dunnuck über: Dominus Napanook

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2017 Napanook checks in 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot. It offers classy notes of cassis, black currants, toasted spices, and hints of flowers. With lots of chocolately 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. 94/100

Galloni über: Dominus Napanook

-- Galloni: 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. Savory, earthy and licorice undertones add striking shades of nuance, with silky tannins that extend the finish effortlessly. 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. 93/100

Parker über: Dominus Napanook

-- Parker: There was about 40% of a normal crop this year due to strict selection. Grapes were harvested from September 21 to October 3 and the wine was bottled in May 2019. The 2017 Napanook is made up of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot and was aged in 20% new French oak barrels. Deep purple-black in color, it springs from the glass with vivacious notions of warm black cherries, blackberry compote and crushed black currants with touches of dark chocolate, licorice, fertile loam, underbrush, camphor and cinnamon stick plus a waft of lilacs. Full-bodied with a firm level of grainy tannins and seamless freshness supporting the bold, spicy black fruit layers, it finishes on a lingering perfumed note. With further time, it begins to reveal the mineral signature of the estate, delivering a glimpse at the gravitas to come with 5-7 years in the cellar. 1,400 cases were made. 92/100

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.
