Napanook Red Wine 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Yountville|
Napanook 2016 offers a bouquet of lavender, cedar, ripe plum and savory earthiness supported by a structure of bright and lively tannins.
Rustic at first, with pepper, game and savory notes peeking through the core of steeped blackberry and cassis flavors. The fruit slowly unwinds to take the upper hand, with cassis and plum preserve elements winning out in the end. Reveals a tug of humus at the very end. Relatively approachable in style, but there's no rush. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2020 through 2028. 3,500 cases made.
