Napanook is made solely from grapes grown in the historic Napanook Vineyard in Yountville, Napa Valley. Napanook is blended from blocks in the vineyard that were carefully selected for their lively fruit, soft tannins and early maturing characteristics.
The 2003 has a dark garnet color, with a nose of vanilla bean, cedar and red fruit. The tannins are soft yet broad and complement the cherry and currant notes that develop on the palate. The intense fruit flavors continue well into the finish, enhanced by a hint of spicy cinnamon.
The 2003 blend is comprised of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. No Merlot was used in the blend this year.
This wine is created to be consumed young, and enjoyed with food, but will also age well from up to 10 years. Christian Moueix recommends decanting the wine before serving to allow it to reach its full potential.
