#"The 2012 Napanook is a clear expression of an exceptional vintage. Pure aromas of fresh strawberry, caramel and minty sage fill the nose. Vigorous and rich with firm, yet integrated tannins, the wine offers earthy complexity, dark cocoa and roasted almonds on a long lingering finish. Blend: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot"

James Suckling

"This is shows wonderful aromas of tar, asphalt, wet earth and pure cherries. Fullbodied, yet soft and velvety with a fine dusty texture to the finish. Fresh and austere. Dignified. This has no cabernet franc in it this year. Normally there is 3% to 5%."

Robert Parker The Wine Advocate

"The 2012 Napanook (a 3,000case blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot) is one of the strongest second wines Moueix has produced to date. Made in a sexy, openknit, opulent style very much in keeping with the vintage's signature, it offers up luscious notes of bay leaf, lavender, red and blackcurrants, plum sauce, licorice and Christmas fruitcake. This is a gorgeous, opulent, medium to fullbodied 2012 that is already revealing considerable complexity. Drink it over the next 1015 years."

Vinous Antonio Galloni

"In addition to being flatout delicious, the 2012 Napanook is also one of the very best values in top Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark, sumptuous and exceptionally polished, the 2012 captures all of the best qualities of the year. Raspberry jam, spices, wild flowers and cinnamon wrap around the silky finish in a Cabernet Sauvignon that over delivers big time. The flavors are bright and focused, but the texture is classic 2012. What a gorgeous wine this is."
