Dominus Estate 'napanook' 1996

Wine advocate - 90: review 12/98: there are 2, 000 cases of the 1996 napanook, a blend of 74% cabernet sauvignon, 13% cabernet franc, and 13% petit verdot. Made in a peppery, spicy, herbaceous, earthy style, it exhibits a dark plum color, an intensely aromatic cassis and pepper-scented nose, a lush entry on the palate, and succulent, low acid, rich, concentrated flavors with more tannin than the 1997. Already drinkable, the 1996 is appealing for its intense fragrance and rich flavors. It should age well for 10-12 years.
