Napa Valley Red Wine

Harlan Estate, Napa Valley Red Wine, 2012

RRP £729

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

Shy nose, savoury, fascinating to detect the aromas as they lift lightly out  – tannins kick in instantly – present, correct, insistent, dryness washed with shots of juice, acidity finding its way through, fruit (dark), minerality, violet perfume, amazing concentration and precision, chewy, even sappy at end, and always the bright acicity pushing through to the finish.
