Wine Enthusiast 89 points - Tastes candied at this time, offering a myriad of raspberry and cherry jam, red currant and caramelized oak flavors. Based on Cabernet Sauvignon, with additions of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it’s a rich, satisfying wine, but a little underwhelming for a Dominus wine. (Sep 2013)
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.
