Wine Details



Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) Sweet floral notes and mesquite emerge in the 2010 Napanook. Generous yet restrained, the wine shows minerality and notes of dried herbs followed by caramelized orange peel, bing cherry and exotic spice flavors. The finish is long and balanced.

Winemaker's Notes

In 1996, Christian Moueix first released Napanook, a wine specifically intended to be enjoyed in its younger years. Eight years later, Napanook has achieved near legendary status in Yountville with its blend of four varietals from vineyard lots chosen for their finesse, lively fruit and subtle tannins. Harmonious in balance, this wine is truly a pleasure to drink.

    By Dominus Estate. 68% Cabernet Sauvignon; 13% Cabernet Franc; 11% Merlot; 7% Petit Verdot; 1% Malbec. There is more than a small family resemblance between this stolid, very tannic, vaguely woodsy wine and its big brother from Dominus, but as the latter offers glimmers of fruit at its heart, this one comes up astringent, bitter and overly dry.
