2017 ulysses, cabernet sauvignon, napa valley
Why We're Buying
Ulysses is the brainchild of Dominus founder Christian Moueix. While the cabernet sauvignon utilizes the same gravelly soil and technical team as Dominus, it has distinguished itself with splashy acidity, polished tannins, and earthy flavors.
Extremely aromatic with crushed berries, currants, flowers and hints of uncured tobacco leaf. Carnations. Medium to full body and extremely fine tannins that are firm and polished. Vertical tannins draw you down. Some blanched-walnut character to the blue fruit. Fresh and clean at the finish. Release in spring 2020. So beautiful to drink now.
