HARLAN ESTATE PROPRIETARY RED WINE 2007 (6) 100 WA


HARLAN ESTATE PROPRIETARY RED WINE 2007 NAPA VALLEY. THE PRODIGIOUS 2007 HARLAN ESTATE REMINDS ME OF A HYPOTHETICAL BLEND OF THE 2002 WITH A TOUCH OF THE CONTROVERSIAL 1997. DENSE PLUM/PURPLE-COLORED WITH SWEET AROMAS OF BARBECUE SMOKE, BLUEBERRIES, BLACKBERRIES, CASSIS, LICORICE, HOT ROCKS AND SUBTLE OAK, IT IS A SPLENDIDLY OPULENT, PURE WINE WITH A SKYSCRAPER-LIKE TEXTURE AS WELL AS STUNNINGLY DEEP FRUIT THAT EXPANDS GRACEFULLY ACROSS THE PALATE. THE FINISH LASTS NEARLY A FULL MINUTE. BECAUSE OF ITS OVERWHELMING RICHNESS AND SWEET TANNINS, THIS BRILLIANT WINE SEEMS TO BE APPROACHABLE NOW, BUT I SUSPECT FURTHER NUANCES AND COMPLEXITY WILL EMERGE AFTER 4-5 YEARS IN THE BOTTLE. THIS WINE WILL STILL BE GOING STRONG AT AGE 25-30. 100 WA 6 BTS. (OWC) PER LOT $6,800 - $7,900




Price Realised: $7080
