YOUNTVILLE, Calif., May 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate the 30th vintage of Dominus as well as an exceptional year for Napa Valley, the 2013 label dons a special portrait of Christian Moueix by William Kentridge. Kentridge is a South African artist internationally known for his prints, drawings, animations and more recently, stage design for opera.
For the 2013 label portrait, Kentridge deconstructed the likeness of Christian Moueix using a collage of multiple ink and charcoal drawings, which convey the complexity, depth and sensibility of its subject.
The 2013 Dominus recalls the 'portrait series' of the earliest vintages (1983-1990), when noted artists depicted Christian Moueix on the labels. In 1991, Dominus adopted its classic label, to which it will return after the 2013 vintage.
"In Napa, the 2013 vintage is, for me, the vintage of a lifetime." – Christian Moueix
