Napanook 2016 offers a bouquet of lavender, cedar, ripe plum and savory earthiness supported by a structure of bright and lively tannins.

Very deep purple-black in color, the 2016 Napanook Proprietary Red Wine is composed of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and 7% Cabernet Franc aged in 20% new oak. A beautiful perfume of violets, aniseed, truffles and lavender is just starting to emerge over a core of warm cassis, blackberry preserves and ripe plum plus hints of cedar chest, chocolate box, rare beef and cardamom. The palate is medium to full-bodied and firmly textured with very ripe tannins, gradually revealing layers of black and blue fruits plus loads of earthy sparks, finishing with amazing freshness and depth. 3,500 cases produced.

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.
