Had at Promontory. Surprisingly Silky. Dark fruits. A bit fruit forward, but quite compelling for the price. AWM — 2 years ago

I was offered this one but I declined, maybe that was a mistake 🤷🏼‍♂️

Penultimate

Napa Valley Red Blend 2014

2nd wine from Harlan's Promontory Winery.

A 1.5 hour decant (some cloudy sediment). A majestic dark murky purplish red magenta color. On the nose: blackberry, black cherry, pepper, eucalyptus, espresso, smokey vanilla. Taste: A velvety medium plus body wine with black cherry, espresso, charcoal, dark chocolate and a blackberry cocoa finish. CHEERS!

Nice pull! Ready or wait? I’ve been wondering when to open mine.

If you are curious like I was, pop the 14 with a 2 hour decant, its drinking great. Per AG, the 2013 was made in a more tannic style (I'm waiting on that one) and that style was changed in 2014.

The Mascot

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

10, Mascot - Bill Harlan
10 is the third release of the Mascot, Bill Harlan's wine produced with grapes from the younger vines at Harlan Estate, Bond, Promontory. If you’re able to afford these three wines. This would be considered your everyday drinking Cali Cab🙂

90% Cab & the rest is PV & CF
Pulled the cork an hour before we went to dinner. Even better after a further hour of decanting when we arrived.

This bottle is firing on all cylinders. Deep ruby color in the glass. All the black fruit you can squeeze into a bottle, with some earthiness. Additional notes of a syrup/tobacco taste to it, dark chocolate. The tannins & acidity 6/10. The finished lingers for a good 30+ seconds.

Four - five years ago this wasn’t near as approachable as it is today. Enjoy them now or over the next decade. Cheers

Agreed! After some aging this becomes a much more impressive some than the “younger Harlan vine” label implies.

@David L we drank our last 2012 recently. I can’t remember exactly what I thought it was blind, but I remember thinking it was a high-pedigree and more expense wine. I recently purchased a few bottles of their current release (2015), which will ship in the fall.

With K at Promontory. Paired with grilled burger on English, quite nice. Still plenty of tannin, glad I have more of this in the cellar. Floral, graphite ok the nose, and cherry and and a hint of chocolate to taste. Fabulous. — 2 years ago
