Critical Acclaim

"Very deep garnet-black colour with a purple rim. The nose is still a little closed giving notes of blackberry, black cherries, dark chocolate, tobacco, cigar boxes and cinnamon. The palate displays faultless structure and balance: very finely grained, firm tannins, medium to high acid and incredible intensity. Perhaps paradoxically, this wine is at once rich and full bodied yet exquisitely elegant. Although taut, it is already irresistibly tempting to drink. Epic finish with lingering flavours of Chinese dried plums, truffles, and an interesting iron/stony nuance. Drink 2009 – 2030+. Tasted November 2008."
100 Points

"A gorgeous wine, extremely ripe, showing opulent red and black plum, black cherry, kirsch and anise flavors, reaching toward blackberry jam yet staying amazingly structured and deeply concentrated.--Non-blind Harlan retrospective (2010). Drink now through 2028. 1,248 cases made."
99 Points

"The aroma is deep and inviting, equal parts new oak, Cabernet fruit and dried herbs. Has tremendous weight, with red and black cherry, cola, chocolate, cassis and roasted coconut flavors. Brilliant now, virtually flawless and totally delicious, yet has the impeccable balance to age and even improve over the years. The listed price is its pre-release price. Drink now through at least 2020. "
99 Points

"Good deep, bright ruby. Knockout liqueur-like aromas of black raspberry, licorice pastille and dried sage. Extremely young and powerful, with great sweetness and succulence to the dense middle palate. Almost painful today on the extremely long aftertaste. A great vintage for this wine: I'd like to come back to this in another decade or so."

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...
