Product Overview

For nearly two decades, Harlan Estate has been committed to creating a California "First Growth" wine estate. Set in the western hills of Oakville, rising above the fabled Napa Valley benchlands, the estate is over 240 acres of natural splendor: oak-studded knolls and valley, roughly fifteen percent of which are under vine, planted to the classic varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Fran anc Petit Verdot. But more than that, it is a family homestead; a place of great inspiration, carved from the raw land, built for generations.

International Wine Cellarage (IWC) Review

IWC 95-98
Full ruby color. Extravagant aromas of black plum, black raspberry, licorice and expensive oak. Extraordinary sweetness and lushness in the mouth; texture like liquid velvet. Still taking shape, but already shows lovely harmony of components. One of the longest wines I tasted on my late winter tour of Napa Valley. Silky tannins are buried under a tidal wave of fruit.

Wine Advocate (WA) Review

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.-Robert Parker
