Peter Maude Fine Wines

2019, Othello, Jean-Pierre Moueix, NAPA VALLEY


A fantastic introduction to Napa, with characteristically opulent, ripe black and red fruit, sage and light earthy notes. On the palate it's lithe with soft tannins and fresh acid, and it finishes with a more savoury, appetising note. Lay & Wheeler, UK.

With a nose of desert sage and warm cherry, Othello 2019 is silky with a soft, peppery finish. Jean Pierre Moueix, Dominus Estate.

 2019 was a very fine vintage for Napa Valley. The winter and spring were especially wet, allowing the vines to build reserves so that they did not stress throughout the summer as they usually do in California. Fluctuating temperatures over April, May and June, however, led to small yields. The weather from June to September was beautiful without extreme heat spikes. Consequently, the wines display a rare equilibrium.
