DOMINUS ESTATE NAPANOOK VINEYARD 1995 NAPA VALLEY. CHRISTIAN MOUEIX AND HIS TALENTED WINEMAKING TEAM CONTINUE TO REWRITE THE DEFINITION OF A NAPA VALLEY REFERENCE POINT WINE. THE 1995 DOMINUS (6,000 CASES PRODUCED FROM A BLEND OF 80% CABERNET SAUVIGNON, 10% CABERNET FRANC, 6% PETIT VERDOT, AND 4% MERLOT) IS A RIPE, PLUMMY, SUPPLE, EXPANSIVELY-FLAVORED WINE WITH COPIOUS QUANTITIES OF BLACK CURRANT FRUIT. FULL-BODIED AND LOW IN ACIDITY, IT POSSESSES EXCEPTIONAL CONCENTRATION AND PURITY. QUALITATIVELY, IT IS BUILT ALONG THE LINES OF THE 1992 AND 1990. WHILE IT IS NOT AS POWERFUL OR INTENSE AS THE 1996 OR 1994, THE 1995 IS A LARGE-SCALED, RICH, CONCENTRATED WINE THAT SHOULD PROVIDE SPLENDID DRINKING FOR TWO DECADES. 93 WA 4 BTS.
