Harlan Estate Napa Valley Proprietary Red Blend 2013

$1175

As I predicted last year, the 2013 Harlan Estate is one of their all-time greats, although they have had many of them, starting with the 1991, followed by 1994, 1995, 1997 (although controversial in some circles), 2001, 2002, 2005, 2007, 2010 and 2012. This great first-growth property, with aspirations to produce the finest Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine made in the New World, has given us a wine that has it all in 2013. Dense purple to the rim, with notes of espresso, white chocolate, mocha, blackberry, cassis, and cedar wood, the wine is full-bodied, opulent, but also structured, pure and incredibly long (well past a minute aftertaste)... Drink it over the next 50+ years. Robert Parker

Harlan Wines are always a treat. However, this bottle is way too young to truly appreciate. Black berries and cocoa w/ mild spice notes. Big Tannins!!

I uncorked this 100 pointer for my friends last night. It's everything you would expect from a Harlan. Balance, structure, purity and lets be honest..,,,shock value of "Oh my God, it's a Harlan". to be honest., this ranked 3rd for me tonight. Ed Snider's 2012 "Guest Cottage" was the winner this evening. Don't get me wrong., we are splitting hairs trying to differentiate these amazing bottles. This just didn't have the "Oh my God" factor that Guest Cottage provided & it doesn't heart that I can buy 3 Guest Cottage's vs 1 Harlan!!!!!
