Dominus Estate Napanook Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013 (1500ml)

$169

...This wine reflects the much higher quality that’s emerging with the second wine of Dominus, which has really become almost its own entity. Loads of loamy soil notes, grilled herbs, meat, blackcurrants, sweet kirsch and licorice are all present in this medium to full-bodied, lush, sexy wine, even in 2013...This wine can be drunk over the next 12-15 years...

Just as magnificent from bottle as it was in barrel, the 2013 Napanook is dense, powerful and brooding, with searing intensity and extraordinary balance. Lavender, plums, violets, licorice and smoke are some of the signatures, but the 2013 exudes finesse, power and intensity. Bracing and searing, the 2013 is going to require quite a bit of patience. If anything, this is an insane level of quality for the second selection. The 2013 could turn out to be a thirty-year wine. It is every bit that magnificent, especially if given some aeration.

Honestly, I was disappointed, perhaps I set my expectations too high. Dark berries, smoky oak - definitely too young!

A blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc. Dark red color with a complex nose of exploding fruit flavors and exotic floral spice. On the palate blackberry and plum flavors with a gentle touch of citrus zest on top of some smoky oak. Still very young and needs time to develop. Waiting in this, one will be rewarded nicely.

We had the 2013 Vintage on 9/12-13/20. Dark purple in color. Sandalwood and almonds on the bouquet. The palate had tastes of black cherry, plum, cocoa and spice. The wine is a hybrid of Bordeaux and Napa. Well balanced with smoothed out tannins. Very good.
