This is Ulysses

This is Ulysses

“What Moueix has done is produce a wine that is in complete contrast to Dominus. The wines of Dominus are known for their silky complexity...they always have an almost Pomerol-like lushness and opulence. Ulysses, on the other hand, is a Napa version of a first or second growth Pauillac."

- Robert Parker


In the heart of Napa Valley’s Oakville bench, right at the foot of the Mayacamas Range, lies the exceptional Ulysses, acquired by the iconic Christian Moueix, son of Jean Pierre Moueix during his time in University of California.

Named after the epic tale of Ulysses in Homer’s Odyssey – a tale of a voyage lasting 10 years – inspired by the unending devotion to the quest and a deep lesson in humility. Driven by the intrinsic foundation of creating a balanced, age-worthy and sophisticated wine.

Primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, with a whisper of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, Ulysses is not only elegant, but substantial with a density that completely draws you in with sweet notes of tobacco coupled with crème de cassis and raspberry nuances. Offering beautiful aromatics and appeal reminiscent of Bordeaux and Napa Valley together in one.
