Very concentrated. Still a baby, with ultra tight dark fruit, tar, toasty oak and baking spice.

Had it 2015.10.26--Scent of various flowers exploded when opened. First sip of this Napa Cult wine (Grand Cru of the region according to its winemaker) by Harlan already evoked memories of left bank Bordeaux wines. Aerated for about 30 minutes before enjoying its notes of peppery, leathery and berries and lasting taste with good steak and more importantly congenial company. I asked the friend and host to talk about his definition of good wine and he said--it's who you had the wine with that made it so very memorable...I guess we wine fanatics are just sentimental people after all :)
