I was a little surprised with this, even more so given the vintage. The nose displayed age, wood and spices.
The palete was a touch gnarly. Overall, the wine lacked linearity and integration. Maybe with age it will come together, but at this stage, it's not there.

I'm a Harlan fan and this was an impressive contribution but it underperformed. I picked up a lot of oak here and a lot of sweet big fruit. Volatile. Another hold.

Bold, deep-fruited beast of a Cab Sauv. Dry on the finish. Exceptionally crafted. #cabernetsauvignon #harlanestate #2007 #moreplease #sommlife

Drinking beautifully. Needed 3.5 hours in the decanter. Dark fruits, Forrest floor, hint of mint

Pronounced oak/wood overshadowed the wine and underlying fruit. Deep inky purple and built to last. Maybe just too early to drink.

Biggest disappointment in wine that I've ever had. Given there were three of us, all sommeliers, we think something went wrong with this bottle.
