Harlan Estate Napa Valley Proprietary Red Petit Verdot Blend 2006

The 2006 Harlan Estate has turned out better than I originally predicted. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by classic aromas of creme de cassis, melted licorice, smoked meats, burning embers, and graphite. It has thrown off some of the tannic clout it displayed last year, revealing great balance. A candidate for "wine of the vintage," this dense, full-bodied effort has 25+ years of life ahead of it. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2035. Robert Parker

Power and grace and poise. Always knows when and how to push the intensity of the fruit without getting heavy. A very lifting wine.
