Napa Valley Red Wine

Harlan Estate, Napa Valley Red Wine, 1996

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

There’s a fine linen aroma here on the nose, it’s fresh and bright on the palate with good tannic heft and lovely power to the acidity. As the palate progresses it remains dense and bright, the tannins dry and washed with juice. This is a venerable, aged wine, absolutely ready, some lovely fruit still evident but gradually receding.
