Ratings: Wine Advocate 93 points; James Suckling 96 points; Vinous 90 points

Christian Moueix first released Napanook in 1996 with the intention of producing a wine to be enjoyed in its younger years. Napanook is a blend of the four varietals coming from vineyard lots chosen for their finesse, lively fruit and subtle tannins. The goal is to find the perfect equilibrium between these elements, creating a wine that is harmonious in balance and pleasurable to drink.

TASTING NOTES: Vinous 90 points The 2015 Napanook is a striking, open knit wine that will drink well with minimal cellaring, something that has not been the case since 2012. A host of blue/purplish fruits, cedar, smoke, tobacco and dark spices are front and center. Fleshy, soft and welcoming, the 2015 is a wine of pure sensual allure. It might not be the most complex or profound Napanook, but I doubt that is what consumers are looking for at this level..Antonio Galloni, December/2016

Wine Advocate 93 points Bottled in July 2017, Dominus' more approachable, less tannic sister wine, Napanook, is a blend this year of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet purple colored, the 2015 Napanook Proprietary Red Wine is redolent of creme de cassis, potpourri, plum preserves and violets with hints of dark chocolate, menthol, licorice and charcoal. Medium to full bodied, the palate is densely packed with black fruit preserves and earthy layers, supported by firm, ripe, fine grained tannins and finishing with great length.October/2017

James Suckling 96 points This is fantastic on the nose with blackberries and forest flowers. Very aromatic. Full body with soft, well integrated and medium grained tannins. Undertones of black olives. Love the hints of sandalwood. Drink or hold..May/2018
