Dominus is the red wine produced from the historical Napanook vineyard, 124 acres in size, in Yountville, mid-Napa Valley, California. Christian Moueix of St. Emilion and Pomerol (France) began producing Dominus with the 1983 vintage. The wine is essentially made from Cabernet Sauvignon with small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It has now obtained worldwide recognition and although Californian by birth with its opulence, spiciness and rich fruit, it clearly has a French reference with its emphasis on elegance and refinement. A winery - designed by Swiss architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron - has been built on the site in 1997, and is closed to the public. A second wine, named Napanook, has been produced since 1996. Visit the Dominus website.
