Napanook is an estate bottled wine from the historic Napanook Vineyard in Yountville, Napa Valley, made from grapes carefully selected for their lively fruit and soft tannins. Notes of blonde tobacco and fresh cedar are integrated with lacy tannins. On the palate, the wine is bright and finishes with plum and mocha. A beautiful wine for pairing with beef, game or fish. This wine is created to be consumed young, and enjoyed with food, but will also age well for more than a decade.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Napanook, from a challenging vintage, is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and 8% Cabernet Franc. It reveals lots of weedy underbrush and herbal characteristics along with pomegranate, sweet cherry and sassafras notes. It also possesses an attractive earthy/autumnal vegetative character, but finishes narrowly with light tannin. Consume it during its first 8-10 years of life.
