Dark cherry and cassis. Liqueur and still strong vanilla notes. Slight lift or perfume (VA); very youthful aromas. A bit warming. Hugely concentrated. Very enjoyable.

Surprisingly little VA, but the reductive nature is a little overwhelming. Showing better than it did a few times in 2011 though...

At 17 , has plenty of years ahead ! Lives up to the hype. One of the rare 100 pt wines that always does.

An elegant and powerful wine made even better poured out of a magnum. Blackberry, cassis, graphite, cedar and cocoa with a taste of that Oakville dust in the finish. Overpriced but lives up to the hype.

1997 Harlan Estate CS. Pre-bday dinner at P. Last bottle opened after the DRC RSV and magnum Giacomo Monfortino. As expected- big, green veg, leather, earth. Got more mineral and green veg as it sat in the glass, interestingly enough. Delicious and great contrast to the Giacomo Monfortino.
