Bright full ruby. Vibrant, expressive aromas of blueberry, black cherry, menthol, graphite minerality and licorice. Plush, ripe and deep; not overly sweet but utterly seamless and refined. This wonderfully broad, rich wine saturates every square millimeter of the palate with flavors on the lively, extremely long finish. The tannins are remarkably fine-grained. This is remarkably balanced from the outset, but it would be a crime to open it too early.

Another wine flirting with perfection is the 2010 Vecina, the nearby neighbor of Harlan Estate on the western hills overlooking the Oakville Corridor, and further south, Yountville. A Graves-like effort, it displays notes of burning embers, scorched earth, creme de cassis, and charcoal. Primordial, dense, rich, full-bodied, masculine and backward, this is another example of a wine built for half a century of cellaring. Forget it for 7-10 years and watch the pleasure unfold thereafter.

Big and ripe, yet graceful and supple-textured, with generous plum, blueberry and blackberry fruit that's elegant and deceptively complex. Firms nicely on the finish, where the tannins take hold.
