Drink Dates 2014-2018

Opened and double-decanted 3 hours prior to drinking. Very dark red/black color. Nose was a bit unusual - some fruit, but also some vegetal and mint aromas. I found it enjoyable and intriguing, but most of the tasters were not fond of its character. A big wine with some black fruit flavors, but also quite a bit of oak, i.e. vanilla and peppery notes. I actually liked this wine more for its aromas rather than flavors. This wine may get a bit better over next few years, but I don't think by much. I much preferred the 2005 Maiden to this 2004.

Bright fruit (maybe cherry) along with nice complexity and finish. Very good, but I was hoping for a little more firmness with the fruit. None of the cedar I've noticed with other Harlan wines.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
