"The 2009 vintage is vibrant and complex, filled with notes of plum, black cherry and earthy tobacco. Pure and precise on the palate, aromas of chocolate and lightly toasted almond complement firm tannins throughout the long finish. 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot alcohol by volume: 14.1%"

"The 2009 Napanook is simply glorious. Sweet dark cherries, mint, tobacco, wild flowers and licorice all jump from the glass. The 2009 is a juicy, extroverted Napanook that impresses for its sheer pleasure and total harmony. Layers of fruit continue to build to the huge, creamy finish. As good as the 2009 is today, I have a hard time thinking it won't be better in another few years. If anything, this is too serious a wine for an entrylevel offering."

"Elegantly smooth in the mouth, like silk and velvet this has rich, forward blackberry, black currant and oak flavors. It feels dramatic and complex, a whitetablecloth Cabernet for pairing with fine meats and cheese."

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
"Good medium rubyred. Cool, rather shy aromas of dark berries, licorice and pepper, with nuances of white fruits. Supple and spicy, with an herbal quality to the flavors of dark berries, spices and mint. Nicely finegrained in the mouth but in a cool style. The slightly drying finish shows a good kick of tannins and calls for at least a couple years of patience."
