2008 Dominus Napanook Red

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

(From 2001 Vintage) 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.

    Nice cab. More French than typical Napa cab. Rounder, less tannic, LEDs fruit. More balanced. Garnet. Red cherry.
