2013 Othello, Christian Moueix
A classy Napa Cabernet Sauvignon produced from the younger vines at the famed Napanook vineyard. Full bodied, juicy and rich with lots of dark fruit, chocolate, nicely integrated oak and a hint of spice. 2013 is considered one of the finest vintages in the region over the last decade. 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot.
It was at the famed Napanook vineyard that Christian Moueix established Dominus Estate in 1983. An historical site, it was the source of fruit for some of the finest Napa Valley wines in the 1940’s and 1950’s. Notably, the vineyard’s history can be traced back to Napa Valley’s beginnings, when in 1838 George Yount, for whom the town of Yountville was named, first planted grapevines there. Today, the vineyard produces three wines: Dominus, its flagship, Napanook, and Othello.
