Winemaker Notes

Color very dense, nearly opaque. Very ripe, concentrated aromatics of vanilla, minerals, coffee,blackberries, licorice, cassis, prune, and shoyu, with high notes of bright red and black fruitsbehind. The flavors are very thick, ripe, layered, and supple on the palate, with tremendouspower and density. The flavor profile is broad, jammy—almost confectionary—and verycomplex, yet displaying a balance of acidity. Tannins and alcohol harmonize to show anuncommon richness.

A big vintage with a big personality—at times problematic, at other times brilliant—evenbetter now, having emerged from a period of metamorphosis. Drink with hearty food now andfor the next 30 years.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 100
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1997 Harlan Estate is one of the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines I have ever tasted. A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this enormously-endowed, profoundly rich wine must be tasted to be believed. Opaque purple-colored, it boasts spectacular, soaring aromatics of vanilla, minerals, coffee, blackberries, licorice, and cassis. In the mouth, layer after layer unfold powerfully yet gently. Acidity, tannin, and alcohol are well-balanced by the wine's unreal richness and singular personality. The finish exceeds one minute. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2030.
WS 97
Wine Spectator
A great bottle, ripe, intense, structured, focused and concentrated, with youthful, vibrant, layered flavors, gaining velocity and length. There's a tremendous finish.--Non-blind Harlan retrospective (2010). Drink now through 2020. 2,100 cases made.

Harlan Estate, California
Harlan Estate Winery Image
For over two decades, Harlan Estate has been committed to creating a California "first growth" wine estate. Founded in 1984, Harlan Estate is set in the western hills of Oakville, rising above the fabled Napa Valley benchlands.

Carved from the raw land and built for generations, the estate is over 240 acres of natural spendor, 15% of which are under vine, planted to the classic varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
