...blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, the 2008 Napanook is equally seductive. It offers soft, round, silky tannins as well as abundant red and black currant notes intermixed with hints of kirsch, spice box, and unsmoked, high class cigar tobacco. Enjoy it over the next 12-15 years. Robert Parker

A year ago I was loving this, 92 and better than the 08 Dominus. Go figure this gets even better. Peaking. P&P, outrageous candy cherry nose came outta nowhere. At cellar temp, just vanilla-liquorice dreamy with power behind it and some serious length. Softer and more nuanced as it warmed in the glass. No need to wait.

Very earthy and funky. Really good now, wont age very well, it already tastes quite evolved. Great now

Elegant and suave. Tarry grip, underlining bay leaf and French pressed coffee. Ultra fine tannins. Hints of charcoal and tobacco smolder on the mid plate. This wine is ironclad, needs several hours to shine.

Bit of Napa mothership.

Dark red, black fruit aromas, notes of currents and complex spice. On the palate blackberries flavors emerge with cacao, oak and leather. Good integration of Tannins and acidity, smooth finish. Drink now.

Dense with heavy tannins. Probably would work well with a fatty cut of meat like a ribeye.

Possibly now evolved to the point where I prefer it to the 08 Dominus. Rich and loaded with liquorice. Tarry, with a rush of undergrowth and scorched earth. Perfect match for a Lebanese cornucopia of filet mignon, shush-taouk and middle eastern roasted veggies.
