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.

Expert Reviews

91 Points | International Wine Cellar , 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.

Another great one from Harlan Estate

With a nose that combines dark berries, gamey meats and some hints of tobacco this wine almost replaces dinner! Nice tannins spreading throughout, very smooth and great balance of layers of dark fruit, meat, and a color so dark that you wonder why it is called a red wine! After the great nose and the excellent impression on the palate it is the finish that is truly amazing: broad and long lasting with an intense minerality - in summary, a great wine!

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay. From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
