Wine Description

(2007 Vintage) The Napanook 2013 charges forth with the power, energy and tension worthy of an exceptional vintage displaying violet notes, cocoa and deep red fruits that linger on a velvety finish. This wine will also age well for more than a decade. Christian Moueix recommends decanting young wines before serving to allow them to reach their full potential. 2013 Napanook Blend: 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc

    (2001 Vintage) "The impeccably made 2001 Dominus boasts a dense plum/purple color in addition to a fragrant, promising perfume of cocoa, cedar, coffee, roasted herbs, and copious quantities of black fruits. There are 7,000 cases of this 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot blend. Rich and medium to full-bodied, with sweet but noticeable tannin, a layered mid-palate, and a long finish with obvious tannin, it will require 3-4 years of cellaring. It should last for two decades...

    (2005 Vintage) By Dominus. 76% Cabernet Sauvignon; 14% Cabernet Franc; 10% Petit Verdot. Although it opens first with a comparatively complex and elegant nose of raspberries, vanilla, sweet oak and pepper, this bottling proves to be far from refined in the mouth and is very much bound up in tannin. Its fruit fights hard but in the end succumbs to astringency and is likely to do so for many years hence.
