International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 138

Full bright ruby. A black hole of a nose: cassis, black raspberry, mocha and licorice, with a suggestion of almost roasted fruits. Then utterly palate-saturating, with a distinctly layered texture to the dark fruit and mineral flavors. Impeccably balanced, fresh wine with a spectacular slow-building finish that coats the palate with a flavor of black raspberry. A knockout.

The 2005 Harlan Estate, which is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with a few of the other Bordeaux varietals blended in, is a brilliant wine, and reminds me of a hypothetical blend of a top Pauillac and a wine such La Mission Haut-Brion from Pessac Leognan. Dense purple in color, with a nose of graphite, smoky embers, creme de cassis, and hints of truffle and underbrush, the wine shows fabulous fruit intensity, full body, sweet, silky tannins, good, vibrant acidity, and a stunning, seamless, long finish that clocks in at about 45-50 seconds.

Dense and earthy, with savory herb, dried currant, spice, mint and cedary oak flavors, all tightly wound, compact and concentrated, yet with a seam of elegance and finesse. Very intense and powerful.

Still has plenty of youthful exuberance, dark cherry, blackberry flavor profile, tannins are moderate. Moderate length finish. Well made with years to go.

decanted for 1.5 hrs, completely closed. Suggest to let this age for at least 10+ years.

Dense and earthy, with savory herb, dried currant, spice, mint and cedary oak flavors, all tightly wound, compact and concentrated, yet with a seam of elegance and finesse. Very intense and powerful. Best from 2011 through 2018. 1,850 cases made.

Black / deep red color with perhaps just a tinge of remaining purple. The nose is a combination of smoke, spice and black fruit with a hint of vanilla. On the palate there is good balance of fruit, acid and tannin; there is a richness of flavors, with a moderate to long finish. Tannins should continue to smooth-out over next several years.

Excellent wine, but I would still give it another 2-5 years in the bottle before drinking more. Strong and tight, but the makings of a 95+ wine are there. Great black fruits and delicious tannic finish.
