Description

From magnum. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, remainder: Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot.

Perfumed lift and resinous mountain herbs followed by a mix of ripe fruits and spiced sugar plum. Notes of cedar emerge on the palate to provide the flavour of a perfectly aged Napa Cabernet. The 1993 offers a balance of power and finesse that is most alluring. The palate becomes progressively more stimulating with air. This would be beautiful with food that respects the nuance of the wine.

The 1999 Harlan Estate is particularly aromatically expressive, offering up vivid aromas of blackberry and violets intermingled with mature tones of cedar and scorched earth. More boisterous, even rustic, and evidently Californian than the Bordeaux-styled 2000, there is notable tannic structure and volume on the palate, and a long, textured finish. My feeling is that more recent vintages are more refined.

Tanzer95+/100
Good medium ruby-red. Slightly high-toned aromas of dark raspberry, spicecake, licorice and minerals. Densely packed, ripe and savory, with its very ripe, slightly inky flavors of dark berries and licorice extended on the back end by strong saline minerality. This highly concentrated, powerfully structured wine boasts excellent acidity and the ripe tannic spine for further positive development in bottle. Finishes with a repeating licorice quality and outstanding palate-staining length.
