I drank this along side a 1995 Ch. Margaux and the 1994 Harlan was the winner by a long shot (and the Margaux was excellent as well). The balance was amazing and the finish was long and soft. Save this one for a very special occasion (as if the price didn't already dictate that!).
Harlan Estate! What is left to say about it. Well, it's good, but Chateau Latour is good too. Do you drink a young Latour in a good year? Let's say, 1961. Would you have drunk 1961 Latour in 1970 or would you wait until now?! People do say that California is no Bordeaux, but, well, Harlan is. That's why I may wait a bit to drink such a rare jewel from Harlan Estate. The wine is big, huge, intense and concentrated. Tannin is big and balanced. The fruit is very present, but the wine need so much more time. So, be patient and drink St Mambert from Pauillac if you want to have fun !
Look Harlan is a good solid wine that deserves about 92+ for a rating. When I left a bottle out, it quickly gave up the ghost, which is a tip-off to me that the stuff doesn't age as well as some people have been saying. I have a couple of cases of this if anyone is interested.
