Napanook Red Wine 2012
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Yountville|
A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, this soft, approachable wine from a storied producer is meant to enjoy young and yet exudes plenty of complexity. Luscious aromas of graham cracker and blueberry jam belie a classically balanced measure of integrated tannins and dark chocolate. Drink now through 2020.
A solid, steady effort that keeps the focus on modest dark berry, cedary oak, spice and loamy earth flavors, gaining on the finish, where anise and black licorice notes emerge. Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2022. 3,600 cases made.
