Napa Valley Red Wine

Harlan Estate, Napa Valley Red Wine, 1998

Bordeaux blend of average 75% Cabernet Sauvignon plus varying proportions of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Very fine fresh nose with unmistakeable savoury, animal tang. The acidity is ripe and full. Very fresh, light and soft in the mid palate with earthy tannins but tightening later. Giving very little away at this stage, though I can’t see the tannins loosening their grip or releasing any more juice as it ages.
