Harlan Estate

The Maiden Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Heavenly blackberry and rich plum conjure up raspberry reductions that smoke a little but stay focused. A stony and crisp, almost granite texture followed by a baked currant and toffee, aromatically. American coffee, sweet licorice and oaky cedar bordering on pine, with cherry spiraling to a bitter, dark, baker’s chocolate that expands endlessly. Dense, rich and layered endlessly. #themaiden #harlanestate #harlan #billharlan #napawine #napa #napavalley2005 #napavalleyforever — a year ago

Not bad not a Spanish wine fan and a definitely still not a fan but better than most smells and tastes like a juice box — 3 years ago

So...I am officially out of daily drinkers and this one came into play. This falls within our category between think twice 🤔 & don't touch 🙅🏼. @Larissa Mitchell gave me the go ahead b/c she didn't care for the timeshare like presentation (& pressure) we got to purchase at the end of the tour. Quintessa makes a fine wine - no salesmanship needed.

My Sunday night challenge to you
@David A Lentine @Martin G Rivard @TheSkip @Mike Rowe @Daryl Calhoun @Roy Goble @Carl Fischer @Jim Trobaugh @Mike Smith @Ron R @Charles Hetzel @David Goldfinger @David Trumper @Bill Bender @Paul T @Eric LaMasters @Eric Shanks @"Odedi" is to recommend Napa reds (Cabs, Merlot, Cuvée) from $30-60 so I can refill this week. Feel free to comment/tag me in a past wine for reference. #napavalleyforever #mitchellwinestorage

Lastly, Chicago Cubs let's get some runs!! Opening a good bottle of wine for luck!!

TN - The nose is strong with cassis and Rutherford dust. Makes me feel like I am laying on the side of the Silverado Trail. Decanted 1.5 hours and it needed it. Very silky on the tongue and dark ruby color.

@Michael Park I wish the Q was $60 but inspired me to ask the question for my typical range.

It has been a ☔️️☔️️🍂🍂 weekend here in Chicago and I couldn't let this gift from @David A Lentine stare at me anymore. Time to pop some good stuff. Plus we have to celebrate a 💪🏻💪🏻 showing by 🇺🇸 at the Ryder Cup, right @Mike Rowe ⛳️?

I'm excited to try some of
@Celia Welch wines that all you post so much of and rave about. 2011 was a difficult harvest but the initial swirl indicates no impact of that!

Once again
@David A Lentine thanks for the generous gift and feeding my #napacab addiction!! #100percentcab #napavalleyforever

Happy Sunday drinking:
