Napa Valley Red Wine

Harlan Estate, Napa Valley Red Wine, 1990

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

Elegant Burgundian rot on the nose: compost and estuary mud. It’s fresh and soft, the tannins bright alongside very evolved fruit, all plum and damson but stewed with sugar, a fine evolved sweetness, a little bit of green on the end palate, the whole elegant, utterly charming, viable and moving to a long, long old age.
