Napanook is made from grapes grown at the historic Napanook Vineyard in Yountville, Napa Valley. The wine is blended from blocks in the vineyard that were carefully selected for their lively fruit, soft tannins and early maturing characteristics. The 2009 vintage is vibrant and complex, filled with notes of plum, black cherry and earthy tobacco. Pure and precise on the palate, aromas of chocolate and lightly toasted almond complement firm tannins throughout the long finish. The 2009 vintage is composed of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 8% Petit Verdot. This wine is created to be consumed young, and enjoyed with food, but 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.

Wine EnthusiastElegantly smooth in the mouth, like silk and velvet-this has rich, forward blackberry, black currant and oak flavors. It feels dramatic and complex, a white-tablecloth Cabernet for pairing with fine meats and cheeses. Seems best now and for a couple more years.

Wine SpectatorNotably herbal and rustic, this is oaky, too, showing a mix of dry, cedary oak, crushed rock, dried berry and currant flavors, leading to a dry, woody finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. 3,700 cases made.
