Harlan Estate 2016 – Napa Valley

Harlan Estate 2016 – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, elegant and offers a beautiful freshness, deepness and a fine/racy grain. It reveals notes of wild blackberry, fresh cassis and small notes of small fresh wild berries associated with touches of wild strawberry, violet as well as hints of sens of the place and tonka bean. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced, elegant, racy, powerful and offers a fresh frame, a beautiful definition as well as an acidulous/fresh frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy/fresh cassis, fleshy/fresh blackberry and small notes of fresh cherry associated with small touches of violet, juicy violet plum as well as very discreet hints of mocha and an imperceptible hint of Bourbon vanilla (in the background). Good length. Tannins are elegant and fine. An imperceptible hint of sens of the place on the persistence. A wine you can keep.
