14 Mar 2022 ? An open and beautiful wine with green-olive and currant aromas and flavors. Some bark and earth too together with mushrooms herbs crushed stones and pomegranate. Medium to full body with round creamy tannins and refined finish. Blood orange at the end. Crunchy. So drinkable now but will age beautifully.
Tod Mostero director of viticulture and winemaking described today?s Napanook label as ?a selection of lots based on the vintage tending towards more loosely woven tannins and more approachability when young.? The 2019 Napanook is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon 5% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot harvested from September 29 to October 10. It was aged in 40% new oak. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored it springs from the glass with Morello cherries black raspberries and black currant pastilles scents followed by hints of cinnamon toast chocolate box pencil shavings a
