Napa Valley Red Wine

Harlan Estate, Napa Valley Red Wine, 2010

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

Inky dark core, shot through with red velvet. Nose with hints of bitumen, chaparral (Napa garrigue), sweet dark fruit developing a sloe-like concentration. So young in profile, the tannins kicking in, staying, lovely concentration and heft, impression of dryness, an austerity about this. l love the bed of tannins that underpins the whole structure, the juice coming through, allowing a certain fatness.
