Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot
The 2004 Harrison Hill is a darker and denser version than normal, with cracked
black pepper, Bordeaux-style herbs, and classic black cherries in the nose. There
is also a gravelly minerality that adds to the complexity. In the mouth this wine is
"classic" Harrison Hill with black cherries, leather, red plums and vanilla oak tones.
Because of great concentration, wonderful structure and lengthy finish, this wine
will give enjoyment for a long time.
"Sour cherry, rock and an almost delicate earthy quality define the entry. In the mouth it has a pleasing granularity, warmed by soft, sweet fruit, and it sits on its mid-palate flavors for a long, long time. Then, slowly, it fades into a tart, somewhat high-toned finish; hinting at wild berry, spicy plum and even a bit of tobacco."
