My Favorite Neighbor Harvey & Harriet Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

$37.99

94 pts - best buy                                  New release from Paso cult producer Booker Vineyards. A fantastic value! 95 Points Jeb Dunnuck:  "Named after winemaker Eric Jensen's parents, Tasted out of barrel, the 2018 Harvey and Harriet sports a deep purple color as well as a powerful bouquet of ripe black fruits, tobacco leaf, smoked earth, dark chocolate, and Asian spice. Full-bodied, ripe, and incredibly sexy on the palate, it has hints of background oak, a rounded, opulent texture, no hard edges, and a great finish. It's one serious, pleasure-bent beauty." 94 points Robert Parker: "The barrel sample of 2018 Harvey and Harriet is made up of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Syrah, 14% Petite Sirah, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot, aging in 75% new French oak. Deep ruby-black in color, it has a very layered nose with aromas of exotic spices, crème de cassis, blackcurrant bud, tar and tilled black soil with hints of violet, lilac, cardamom and baking spices. The medium to full-bodied palate is silky and has a great interplay of fruit and spice. It has a firm, pleasantly chalky frame and just enough freshness, finishing long with a youthful cloaking of oak spice. This is great! It deserves more time in bottle, but it's drinking wonderfully straight out of the gate."

Blackberries and plum, vanilla with a touch of Smokey coffee. Was Great as a standalone

Better than everyday, but a bit big for my taste. As expected from Paso Robles.

Extremely rich with powerful fresh dark berries and graphite on the back. The fruit is larger than the oak but is not over extracted. There are many more years of good drinking from this bottling. 14.9ABV is easily carried by the wine. Pleasure to consume. At $30 a fair buy.
