International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 102

(this is 90% cabernet sauvignon, while the '98 is only 60%) Full medium ruby. Very ripe, fresh aromas of currant, black cherry, brown spices and smoky oak. Fleshy, dense and sweet, with lively, harmonious acidity giving the flavors excellent definition. Finishes with thoroughly ripe, broad cabernet tannins that coat the entire palate. Very suave wine, and amazingly good for a second wine.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 142

The 1999 The Maiden (700 cases) is a more evolved, slightly lighter, less prodigious example of its bigger sibling, the Harlan Estate. The dense saturated purple-colored 1999 The Maiden exhibits an evolved sweet nose of cedar, black currants, licorice, and smoke as well as outstanding density, purity, and ripeness, medium to full body, and firm but unobtrusive tannin in the finish. It should drink well for 12-15 years, perhaps longer. As the wine sat in the glass, aromas of chocolate and cigar smoke emerged.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube Issue: Web

Intense and concentrated, a high-octane style, with currant, blackberry, earth and spice flavors. Finishes with a hot tannic aftertaste, but also lots of flavor, folding in oak and mocha scents. 766 cases made.

"The Maiden" is Harlan Estate?s second wine. In general, "The Maiden" is much more accessible than the grand vin but still has shown a cunning ability to develop and improve with time. The 1995, the first "The Maiden", is drinking beautifully today. Head to head, it recently embarrassed a 1996 Pahlmeyer Red. The '99 version does not compare favorably to the '95. Opaque black red colored wine with a few thin slightly pigmented legs. Sweet thick aromas of pepper, cassis, mint, espresso, smoke, and a touch of pruney tomato. Enjoyably thick and viscous with sweet rather foursquare cassis flavor and moderate tannins. Acid is a little lower than usual. The wine finishes with decent length and good fruit.
