Critical Acclaim

"An open-throttle style that flirts with perfection. Ripe, firm, dense, concentrated, complex, focused and persistent, riding a wave of ripe currant, black cherry and mineral notes. Gains velocity and length.--Non-blind Harlan retrospective (2010). Drink now through 2026. 1,250 cases made. "

"Deep garnet-black colour going brick at the rim. Alluring aromas of warm blackcurrant, eucalyptus, cloves and a sprinkling of Chinese five-spice. A dense, full bodied palate packed with emerging layers of intense dark berry, dried herb and spice flavours. Crisp acidity and fine, firm tannins provide seamless structure, in balance with the concentration of flavours. Very, very long finish with some minerality coming through at the end. Just beginning to drink now, should continue to evolve to 2025+. Tasted November 2008."

"Deep ruby-red. Highly complex but subdued nose melds currant, dried cherry, violet, clove, licorice and dusty herbs; less obviously ripe than the 2002 but also much subtler today. Mineral-driven, sharply delineated and classic, with strong mineral, spice and dark fruit flavors carrying through to the impressively long, rising finish, which boasts superb energy and lingering graphite minerality. This is Pauillac to the 2002's Pomerol, and is also structured for a long and positive evolution in bottle. A great and classic example of its vintage. Rating: 96+"

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
