The 2014 Napanook is, once again, a very serious wine. Dark, powerful and brooding, the 2014 possesses remarkable intensity packed into its mid-weight frame. Smoke, scorched earth, tobacco, graphite, savory herbs and menthol add to an impression of gravitas. The 2014 doesn't quite have the depth or power of the 2013, but it leans in that direction. I would give it a few years in bottle to settle down. This is an impressive showing. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, December 2016)

Very hot smell, strawberry, red fruit, ripe cherry. Very long lasting flavor and also quite hot. Went extremely well with our steak! Got to have this on our thanksgiving and my dad purchased it. Was his most expensive wine purchase so may have increased due to the event
