Carpe Diem means “Seize the Day” in Latin and it seems like that’s exactly what the makers of this wine are constantly doing. Christian Moueix and his Dominus winemaking team in Yountville had yet another wine to produce after they were done with Dominus and Napanook Cabernet, and this is it. Grapes were selected exclusively from the best vineyards in Napa Valley (perhaps including Napanook?).This 2016 is a library re-release from that stellar vintage. 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot aged 12 months in 10% new French oak and aging gently, bottled in the winery cellars for 5 years.On release, the Wine Spectator said “This is old-school, with bay leaf and savory notes popping out of the core of steeped plum and black currant fruit. Features a tarry edge, a spike of iron and flickers of pepper throughout. Best from 2021 through 2028.” 750 ml
