This is very young. Good acidity will live a long life. Like many of its peers from this decade and this vintage it’s a big boy.

After an epic lunch from @joe leatherwood , a few of us got together for a socially-distanced evening hosted by @Keith Fisher to keep the party going. After the 2012 Harlan at lunch, Keith decided to continue with the theme with an ‘06. Unbelievably smooth and balanced while still retaining power. Aromatically it is very black fruit dominant...blackberries, cassis, sweet tar/pipe tobacco, graphite and channeling just a touch of bay leaf. Waves of flavor on the palate of smoked meat, creme de cassis, currant, mocha, baking spices and a supremely balanced finish. At this point in its evolution, it’s reminiscent of a high end bordeaux from a warm/ripe vintage. A total treat.

A paradise of very fine wines to compare on our 15 year anniversary—what a treat! This Harlan is a muted purple garnet with subtle bricking. The nose fills the senses with blueberry and dark cherry fruit and floral scents; a graphite tar with smoked meat, spices and hint of creamy vanilla linger. Blueberry-dark raspberry and mocha is the initial taste followed by a perfumed, cassis graphite taste with a smoked spice and tobacco finish..Tannins are still present and add to the smoke-cedar long finish.

Anniversary celebration...had to have some fun wines...its a 06 Harlan vs 06 Colgin battle tonight! 1 hour decant(decent sediment). A beguiling purplish garnet with some bricking. On the nose: subtle but expressive nose of dark cherry, tar, graphite, smoked meat, creme de cassis, floral. Taste: powerful but elegant with silky tannins, black raspberry, mocha, minerals, dark chocolate, and a long smokey cedar finish with a slight tannic kick. YUM..plenty of time to go.
