Napa Valley Red Wine

Harlan Estate, Napa Valley Red Wine, 2013

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

I love the nose on this – creamy, full, generous plummy aromas, hint of oak here. The tannins now robust and insistent and pulling apart from the acidity – six years on and the components are finding their place, tension working all ways, the finish dry and intense, juice fighting against the tannins. Young and not nearly ready – this will be mighty in a few years and will last for decades.
