More Vintages and Sizes of Harlan - The Maiden:
Recommended For You
Author: Robert Parker
The 1996 Maiden was performing even better this year. The dark saturated plum/purple color is followed by aromas of prunes, coffee, black fruits, and espresso beans. With an opulent personality, low acidity and a plush texture, it is a sexy, well-endowed wine.

This was an off bottle. The fruit was completed dominated by the tannins and acidity. After two hours of air it opened only slightly. Try again in three years.

Nice dark purple, almost black color. Strong bouquet of coffee/espresso beans and plenty of black fruit and plums. On the palate it is a full bodied wine with an opulent texture where fruit, acidity and tannins blend well. This will probably still be a great wine the next 5-7 years.
