Just about as beautiful as wife and her friend - what a brilliant wine - pop this wine when life is good and reward yourself - bravo Bill

‪this ‘99 #Harlan is on the prowl, waiting...waiting...waiting in the shadows to sink its rich, currant-coffee-cedar-mineral essence into the sizzling steak 🥩 - #WineWednesday 🍷#Napa 🐅 ‬

First commercial release. Very monodimensional. Lacking complexity but showing oak. Out of its class with the Bordeaux we were drinking

A completely different wine than the Dominus. This was full throttle and slams you back in to your seat with its G forces. So ripe, almost over the top; but it decelerates just in time and the finish is so succulent it lingers in your mouth forever. Filled to the tip of the cork with graphite and teeth staining purple fruit. This is the malevolent bastard child of a young Colgin IX Syrah and 2000 Chateau Pavie. Gobsmacker.

Always a treat. Harlan 2004 is deep violet in colour, great structure, blackberry and some warm spices. Great acid. Just lovely.

It’s really hard not to be seduced by Harlan. Yes, there’s hype - but never have I been disappointed by this wine. Structured, profound and finely nuanced. Excellent.
