*Cellar Selection* A stupendous wine that epitomizes the Harlan style of grace and power. Shows how the most elaborate vineyard and winery practices can contribute to a near-perfect wine, even in a less heralded vintage. The flavors cascade in endless tiers, black currant, cherry, mocha, Indian pudding, oak and spice, all coming together in a minute-long finish. Magnificent.
The 2000 Harlan Estate is in a beautiful place today. Soft, open-knit and nicely mellowed by age, the 2000 is absolutely gorgeous, with soft contours to match is engaging personality. Mocha, black cherries, leather and spice are all quite forward in this succulent Harlan Estate. The 2000 might not be a profound Harlan Estate, but it is a striking wine that is peaking today and that should continue to drink well for at least another few years. (AG)
Tight, concentrated and compact, showing dried currant, berry and mineral character, with tannins that frame the flavors. Ends with a black cherry and blackberry fruitiness. This was a cool, drawn-out year. (JL, Web—2010)
Very deep garnet-black colour with a brick rim. The nose is more evolved than the 1999, moving away from warm dark berry fruits with pleasant aromas of exotic spices, tobacco, leather and scorched espresso. The palate is nonetheless finely structured with a medium to firm level of grainy tannins and medium+ acidity to give freshness to the medium to full body. Long, spicy finish. (LPB)
