Dominus Napanook Vineyard 2005
Bordeaux Red Blends
from Napa Valley, California
Napanook is made solely from grapes grown at the historic Napanook Vineyard in Yountville, Napa Valley. Napanook is blended from blocks in the vineyard that were carefully selected for their lively fruit, soft tannins and early maturing characteristics.
The 2005 vintage is dark crimson in color, with a fragrant, rich nose full of blackberries and dark forest fruits. The aroma slowly reveals subtle notes of smoky sandalwood, chocolate, and sweet almonds. The entry on the palate is round, but firm; precise and enveloping. Well-balanced tannins open throughout the evolution, and linger on the finish with cherries, cedar and cacao.
2005 marks the 10th vintage of Napanook, probably the best to date.
Napanook 2005 is comprised of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Petit Verdot.
