About Harlan Estate
In 1983, when Bill Harlan bought an estate in a steep, forested area of Oakville, his aim was to create a Napa Valley First Growth. Whether he has come that far is open to argument, but he certainly has come close.
91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2004
Highly aromatic nose combines roasted black raspberry, game and beefsteak tomato. Superripe and smooth, with lovely vinosity and subtle notes of tobacco and meat. Finishes with big, broad, spreading tannins and intriguing mineral character. Suggests a wider range of ripeness than the young 2002 sample.
