Napanook is made from grapes grown at the historic Napanook Vineyard in Yountville, Napa Valley. The blend for the 2013 vintage is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot with 3% Cabernet Franc.
This is a rich, complex wine in 2013, aromas being scented and pure, recalling cassis and herbal spice. Ripe, intense and rich in the mouth, the palate is full-bodied, supple and opulent, all held in place by a precise, mineral backbone. This is a more structured, denser wine than in previous vintages, for drinking 2018-2022+.
