Best Napanook yet. Maybe reflected by the fact that it costs twice as much as it did a few years ago. Big and bold. Rivals some estate flagship wines and it's just a secondary.

Extremely well balanced between fruit, tannin, and more aggressive flavors of earth. Impressive, but I bet this will be far superior in a few years.

A little green and tight. Strong and pronounced as usual but I wonder what the high end stuff was like this year.

Smooth red blend. Big dark fruit plus plus fresh earth aroma/bouquet. Smokiness with a touch of oak. Excellent wine.
